Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: Vancouver’s Lift Expo serves as an example of where the cannabis industry’s heading and two Ottawa Weeds shops close after its products are seized by Canada Post. The owner of Peterborough’s recently raided Cannabis Culture dispensary plans to reopen this week and Canopy Growth announces a partnership with Delivra to produce innovative topical products. Mandy McKnight explains the “miracle” that cannabis has been for her epileptic son and New Brunswick’s working group on legalization is looking at pot policy and distribution. Also, Tommy Chong is seeking a pardon from President Obama for selling bongs, the late Merle Haggard gets a strain in his name, and Damian Marley readies to open a new dispensary in Colorado. Have a great day!
