Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Vancouver mayor Gregor Robertson says legalization is creating a situation Canadian cities are unequipped to deal with and the owner of a recently-raided Surrey pot shop plans to file a Charter challenge. Reform will be among the items the country’s Supreme Court will have to address this fall and Jamaica is embracing cannabis after decades of prohibition. VICE looks at how the medical marijuana movement wouldn’t exist without early AIDS patients and Le Devoir explores what legalization may mean for Montrealers. Also, SNL’s Pete Davidson says marijuana helps him perform, a former California mayor is setting people up with cannabis companies and rapper 2 Chainz gets stoned and sips on $600 cat poop coffee. Have a great day!
