Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Canopy Growth is listed among top breakout stocks on the TSX Tuesday and a group of MPs is proposing a research centre for first responders that would study the use of medical cannabis. A New Brunswick college is planning to institute a program on cannabis cultivation and Sunrise Medicinal dispensary in Barrie reopens after being raided recently by police. Cannabis offenses are on the decline in Canada for the third year running and archaeologists unearth a well preserved 2,500-year-old pot plants. Also, Denver police are running out of room to stash their confiscated grass, a candidate for Saskatoon council admits to past convictions for cannabis possession and the ad agency responsible for the Trailer Park Boys-backed Liquormen’s Ol’ Dirty Whiskey are pleased by the bad buzz their campaign is generating. Have a great day!
