People have been making cannabis dispensaries in Animal Crossing for a long time. I mean, the last game was called Animal Crossing: New Leaf — and then there’s Leif, the gardener and arborist who always asks if he can buy weed(s) off your island. With New Horizons’ custom designs, you make whatever the hell you want, and players would customize stands and panels for the right vibe. But the 2.0 update has introduced a few choice items that have allowed players to further upgrade their dispensary setups.

First, there’s the new schefflera plant — it’s not a marijuana plant, but it looks close enough to pass as one. Definitely closer than any plant that came before it. (Fun fact: the schefflera is also known as a “money tree” in some cultures, signaling prosperity of a different sort.)

Cluster these plants and combine them with convincing accent walls, furniture items, and the Happy Home Paradise DLC’s overheat lighting, and you’ve got Animal Crossing players growing their own weed — stocking their dispensaries with the best cannabinoids and terpenes New Horizons has to offer.

And then there’s Whistloid, one of the 2.0 update’s gyroids that definitely does not look like a

AURORA, Colo. — Deserea Franz is covered in cuts and bruises after she was robbed and assaulted when she was leaving a Lightshade Dispensary in Aurora on Tuesday.

“I was approached by a woman… who came out of a running car and asked if I had a lighter,” Franz said. “I said, ‘I don’t,’ And then, in a flash, she grabbed my purchase bag and my hand and pulled me into the car.”

The driver of the car immediately sped off with her halfway out of the car. Franz says she was dragged more than 50 feet before the thief let go of her arm.

“I was trying to keep up the best I could with my feet, and then they started to accelerate so fast that I was literally being dragged on the ground until she finally let go of my arm,” Franz said. “I just felt really, really scared. I was afraid for my life.”

She reported the assault to the Aurora Police Department who say they are investigating what happened. But she is still startled about the incident.

“I hope that the person, the people involved in this get held accountable for what they did. And I hope that

If you’re an OVO diehard that is obsessed with everything Drake does, then you probably love living in the 6ix — unless, of course, you want to smoke his weed.

In September, the flagship store for the Toronto icon’s new cannabis brand, Bullrider, announced it will be opening in Brampton, which seems like an odd move for the guy who coined the phrase “the 6ix.”*

The store, which is located at 67 Selby Rd., is set to host its grand opening on November 27 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.*

The event will include a collaboration with Ozzy’s Burgers and allow customers to score special deals on products.

The launch of the cannabis brand, which is named after its namesake strain, Afghani Bullrider, marks Drake’s latest partnership with longtime producer and OVO co-founder Noah “40” Shebib.

Shebib revealed in a press release back in October that the business endeavour is incredibly close to his heart because of cannabis’s healing effect on his multiple sclerosis.

“My involvement with Bullrider stems from the urge to help consumers access high-grade strains with the same recreational therapeutic benefits that I’ve been able to enjoy,” 40 said.

“It’s not just another cannabis brand, Bullrider has a deep reverence for quality cannabis

Drake has opened his first ever cannabis dispensary, but in a surprising location: Brampton, rather than Toronto.

The store is called Bullrider Cannabis, and rapper Drake is opening it with his OVO co-founder Noah “40” Shebib.

The store is decorated with art by Kwest, also behind Drake album art, as well as steel armature sculptures.

“Bullrider has existed for and because of continual improvement. It’s helped people do more and feel better,” reads the Bullrider site.

“At the heart of Bullrider is the convergence of street art, hip-hop and limited premium cannabis product offering.”

The site notes that the company is also based in Toronto, but the flagship store has opened at 67 Selby Rd. in Brampton and only offers delivery to Brampton and Mississauga.

“Brampton fits our cannabis farmgate model so that we can grow and sell onsite. It’s also close to major hubs, Mississauga and Vaughan, both of which do not have any cannabis retail presence,” Max Zavet, chairman for Bullrider Cannabis, tells blogTO.

“Toronto is coming soon. We are excited to offer one of the most iconic cultivars in Canada, the Afghani Bullrider, right from harvest to retail.”

The South Dakota Medical Cannabis Program officially began issuing patient cards on Nov. 18, issuing its first card to a resident of Day County. But as of Tuesday the state had received only 10 applications, approving seven at that point, and advocates found a lack of registered doctors in the process could be a hurdle for patients.

“Today marks the culmination of months of hard work in preparation for the kickoff of a responsive and efficient medical cannabis program for eligible South Dakotans,” Medical Cannabis Program Administrator Geno Adams said in a Nov. 18 press release. “In the months ahead, we will continue to ensure that patients and their caregivers, can continue to obtain medical cannabis permits in accordance with their written certifications.”

South Dakota voters approved Initiated Measure 26 in the November 2020 general election, thus setting the stage for legalized medical cannabis statewide. Attempts to push back the date of implementation failed, and IM 26 went into effect on July 1.

South Dakota Department of Health spokesperson Daniel Bucheli told the Capital Journal that 10 applications for cards had been received as of Tuesday and seven cards had been granted thus far.

“Per SDCL 34-20G, the Department of Health has 15 days to

ONTARIO – The retail marijuana industry in Ontario is booming.

Three years after Ontario voters repealed a ban on marijuana sales, the industry continues to grow, delivering jobs and revenues to city coffers.

“There is still a lot of growth potential,” said Steve Meland, co-owner of Hotbox Farms marijuana dispensary in Ontario. His firm was among the first to open in town.

Ontario hosts eight marijuana dispensaries now and the city has approved the construction of nine more.

The newest dispensary in town, Elevation 2150, on Southwest 4th Avenue, opened in April and another retail marijuana business, ID Holdings is scheduled to open soon. ID Holdings at 1200 S.E. 1st St. is 1,831 square feet and about 20% complete, according to Dan Cummings, Ontario Community Development director.
