This weekend is a historic weekend for all of us Canadian Foggers! As we celebrate Canada’s 151st birthday, we’re also celebrating being the first G20 country to legalize recreational cannabis.
In national cannabis news, a B.C. senator writes to the Town of Oliver warning of potential border issues once recreational cannabis is legalized; the healthcare sector in the TSX saw a 16% jump, thanks in large to cannabis stocks; and Jodie Emery cites 45 new cannabis offenses introduced by the Cannabis Act, including a prohibition on the possession of a budding or flowering cannabis plant in a public space – punishable by up to 5 years of imprisonment.
As for cannabis news around the world, Israeli company Together (TASE: TGDR) just signed an MOU with an EU entity for the growing, processing, and exporting of the plant; Oklahoma, a traditionally conservative red state, becomes the 30th state in the U.S. to approve the medical use of cannabis; and two mothers in Ireland campaign to raise awareness for the legalization of medical cannabis by climbing one of the country’s most challenging peaks! It will be exciting to see what other G20 country will follow Canada’s suit and work towards legalization.
In our beautiful country, 1 in 4 between the ages of 24-34 are embarking on in their cannabis journeys, and we want to SHARE the LOVE with you this weekend: 15% off store-wide, including our Black Label and Driftwood collections, for all of July 1st & 2nd.
