Most Manitobans find driving high on cannabis ‘unacceptable’: survey

A new survey suggests most Manitobans are against drug-impaired driving.

Eight in 10 people said driving after consuming cannabis was “unacceptable” in a Manitoba Public Insurance survey of 1,500 Manitobans.

The survey comes on the heels of MPI’s newest public awareness campaign to curb drug impaired driving.

London cannabis stores say they won't join trend to cut hours

Highlife owner says he's happy and relieved to be opening his doors

By this time next week, Greater Sudbury will have two cannabis stores, and the owner of the HighLife store on Marcus Drive couldn't be happier.

“I'm super happy,” Anton Lucic said Friday. "And I'm relieved, I guess. But more than anything, I'm really excited to get going."

Lucic was one of two lottery winners picked to open the stores allocated for Northern Ontario, which has two of the 25 stores the province is allowing to open. Both Lucic and the other winner, Saturnus Partners, chose to open in Sudbury.

The stores were allowed to open April 1, as long as their paperwork was completed and approved by the province. But most stores were delayed, and Saturnus opened their Canna Cabana outlet on Long Lake Road April 20.
