The times, they are a changing.
Once deemed as illegal in every corner of the earth, marijuana is breaking free of its government-imposed outlaw status and is making its way into mainstream society – legally.
With California, Nevada and Massachusetts joining Alaska, Washington and Colorado in legalizing the plant for recreational use, pot is taking its place in society as a vice endorsed by the masses.
However, legalization of the plant south of the border will likely not be a boon to legal pot growers in Canada.
Darcy Bomford, founder and CEO of Vernon-based True Leaf, said there are still too many rules and regulations in place preventing marijuana to be shipped across the border.
True Leaf, the cannabis company with a soft spot for dogs, is giving back on Valentine's Day.
True Leaf has two main operating divisions: True Leaf Medicine Inc. and True Leaf Pet Inc, which manufactures hemp-based products for the pet industry.
