Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: A new Forum poll shows Canada will see 900,000 new pot smokers under legalization and CATSA updates its policies to clear the air on flying with medical cannabis. Ottawa Public Health reveals how it feels reform should proceed and PM Trudeau scores an A- on his first report card, which includes legalization. Vancouver councillor Kerry Jang says a pharmacy licensing program is the city’s most sensible med pot strategy and Tel Aviv researchers find that inhaled cannabis may help treat Parkinson’s disease. Also, Tommy Chong says he intends to keep “priming the pump” of cannabis reform, gourmet infused dinners are gaining mainstream acceptance, and 420 Nurses are just one of the groups you can expect to find at every cannabis event.
