Bonjour-Hi!

Hollywood Reporter logs Tweed as a means of scoring grass at the Toronto International Film Festival and regulators in Alaska are given the green light to open the state’s first pot shop. Cannabis-based osteoporosis drugs gain viability in the face of traditional treatments and America’s largest veterans group wants Congress to treat marijuana like a medicine. Also, make sure you wear some flowers in your hair when you visit San Francisco’s private cannabis lounge (replete with concierge service), Windy Borman’s new film explores how women are shaping this new industry, and meet the man the U.S. government has been sending 300 joints to for the last 34 years.
