Bonjour-Hi!

Medical cannabis is approved in Florida, North Dakota and Arkansas, and Tommy Chong applauds California’s decision to move on recreational grass. A Belleville man says he was denied use of his medical cannabis at Kingston General Hospital and Toronto’s dispensary scene has reportedly gone dry of edibles. Also, Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg’s Potluck Dinner Party is here to normalize weed, Action Bronson, The Game and Wiz Khalifa blaze on stage at ComplexCon, and Dope dives into an infused pumpkin pie recipe… a couple weeks too late. Have a great day!
