July 8, 2019 | Bruce's (Smith) Fall Edition

Two big stories dominated the cannabis news last week in Canada - and one has global implications. Story 1: Canopy Growth ousted Co-CEO Bruce Linton. This news set off a series of stories, including one about the t-shirt Linton was wearing on his post-removal press tour… Story 2: Ontario set in motion the next wave of cannabis retail.

The other 8 will be allocated to First Nations’ communities on a first come first serve basis.
