Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Two of Canada’s largest banks are refusing to open accounts for cannabis companies and Tweed announces the completion of the country’s first world-class breeding facility. The Liberal legalization task force says Canada Post could charge for door-to-door weed delivery and Marc Emery admits his Toronto landlord has been trying to evict him since the day he opened his dispensary. The Durham police board is seeking answers to why a member of the force was allowed to operate an illegal pot shop and Victoria’s mayor says on-site consumption will not be permitted under the city’s new cannabis rules. Also, Raekwon dishes out the story of how weed and pizza made the Wu-Tang Clan, Treyous Jarrells says he was high during every one of his NCAA games, and the founder of 99th Floor shares his edibles secret to making it in the weed industry. Have a great day!
