Bonjour-Hi!

In today’s news/Dans les manchettes aujourd'hui: The Los Angeles Times editorial board formally backs legalization in California and the Windsor Star questions what reform could mean for the 120 ports along the Canada-U.S. border. Police raid another dispensary in Hamilton and Nashville is set to become the first city in Tennessee to decriminalize marijuana. Scott’s Miracle Grow moves from suburban lawns to hydroponics equipment designed for the cannabis industry and Rolling Stone delves into the NFL’s “backwards” pot policy. Also, two women are arrested for holding four brothers hostage at a pot farm in Norcal, operators of the Maryland county fair shut down a vendor for selling THC-laced candies, and Dr. Dre’s son sets out on a round of pot shop visits as part of his Music and Medicine tour. Have a great day!
