August 3, 2018: Doctors in Canada want to see the medical cannabis system phased out once legalization happens later this year, says a Canadian Medical Association vice-president.
“The medical profession, as a whole, has really struggled with the whole concept of medical cannabis.

June 30, 2018: LEE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WSYM) – Location is huge in real estate, just ask anyone who’s tried to sell a house near a sewage treatment plant.
One homeowner says an outdoor pot-growing operation next door is making it tough to sell his house.
