Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: A new Gallup poll released Wednesday shows 60 percent of Americans are now in favour of reform and Bedrocan’s Hilary Black unites medical cannabis patients with the Liberal task force on legalization. CGC CFO Tim Saunders features at the New West Summit in San Francisco and ex-Bear QB Jim McMahon plans to tout the benefits of medical marijuana in an ad to run on Thursday Night Football. MMPR market statistics show a steady growth in the Canadian cannabis sector and the U.S. legalization campaign is reportedly being funded by deep-pocketed donors. Also, a Utah governor candidate appeals for med pot hours after his wife pleads guilty to weed charges, Krishna Andavolu meets with Colorado’s notorious stoner bible group, and Canadian crooner Leonard Cohen says he enjoys “esoteric arguments fueled by medical marijuana” with his son. Have a great day!
