Recently Waterloo Region has been catapulted into the news on the issue of cannabis:
- 4 arrested after police bust marijuana dispensary in Kitchener
- Marijuana dispensaries closing doors in wake of Waterloo raid
- Absolute discharge for owners of raided Waterloo Dispensary

And then there are the news stories like Now Magazine’s rundown of Marijuana, Inc: The buzz behind the Canadian bud biz the National Post’s Marijuana task-force member’s move to legal weed company raises conflict-of-interest concerns and Police chiefs and politicians: The new faces of corporate medical marijuana in B.C., the Toronto Sun’s looks at the T.O. pot dispensary battle a ‘game of cat and mouse’ and Police chiefs and politicians: The new faces of corporate medical marijuana in B.C. while Macleans reports How public officials got into the weed game.
Tomorrow night (Friday, September 29th, 2017) you can come to An Alternative Cannabis Consumption Awareness (ACCA) education night will take place Friday Night at UC Vape in Kitchener.
NOTE: There is a $5 admission fee, and as I understand it from the Facebook Event Page you need to apply to attend.

“There are more criminal offenses in the new Cannabis Act than there currently are in the existing legislation.”
