Province looking to cash in on marijuanna

The Gallant Government is looking at the rectreational marijuana industry as a source of black ink to replace some of the red on its books.

It’s giving producers financial incentives and has developed a community college program for cannabis technicians.

Premier Brian Gallant says the marijuana industry is expected to be worth billions of dollars and create thousands of jobs and his government wants to make sure it gets in on the ground floor so it can grow the economy.
