Ontario will scrap lottery system, move to expand retail cannabis market in 2020

Immigration attorneys and advocate groups gathered Wednesday morning in Chicago’s Loop to get word out that any noncitizen — including legal residents — could be adversely affected by admitting to federal immigration agents that they’ve used marijuana or work in the industry.
