Cannabis IQ: Get your weekly news and information about legalization

As marijuana officially becomes legal on Oct. 17, most of us still have more questions than answers on how it’ll impact our day-to-day lives.

How can you legally buy pot? What do we know about its health impacts? How does it impact your ability to drive? Will legalization really provide a massive boost to the economy?

We know that many Canadians already use weed. According to an exclusive poll by Ipsos for Global News, 21 per cent of Canadians use cannabis and 72 per cent of those people use it regularly.

So how can you keep up with the changing landscape of legal cannabis?
