Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Age restrictions are counted among 33 recommendations received by the federal task force on legalization and the New York Times reports pot arrests still outnumber charges for violent crimes in the U.S. A Pot-up dispensary is operating like a fruit stand in East Van and the Supreme Court is to rule today if police opinion about high drivers should be admissible in court. Government leaders in the UK take a step toward accepting medical cannabis by recognizing extracts and NS safety group Injury-Free Nova Scotia prepares for legalization. Also, Miley Cyrus says she lost her Walmart clothing deal over her love for weed, Grammy-winning producer Terrace Martin joins Snoop on a new episode of GGN, and Conor McGregor will have to face the same court that’s tried UFC star Nate Diaz for his medical cannabis use. Have a great day!
