'What kind of grandfather needs 140 plants?': Neighbours fed up with dozens of medical marijuana grow-ops

People living in several north Winnipeg neighbourhoods say they have become prisoners in their own homes since their neighbours sold their houses to new owners who have turned them into medical marijuana grow operations.

"The smell is horrific," said Eddie Calisto-Tavares.

Calisto-Tavares owns her own business and, like many, is now working from home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. She and her husband started going for daily walks around the neighbourhood in March and began to notice a strong odour around certain homes, she said.

This Is How To Use CBD Oil In Order To Treat Painful Inflammation

CBD oil is naturally extracted from the hemp plant and is appreciated for its possible healing properties. Hemp is not to be confused with marijuana as it doesn’t contain the psychoactive component, THC, required for the high effect.

USask researchers to study how cannabis use during pregnancy affects fetus' brain development

University of Saskatchewan (USask) pharmacologist Robert Laprairie will use a Brain Canada research grant to determine how a mother's use of cannabis during pregnancy affects the brain of the developing fetus she's carrying.

Laprairie is one of 20 Canadian neuroscientists each awarded $100,000 today as part of Brain Canada's Future Leaders in Canadian Brain Research Program.
