France: The next big profit opportunity in medical marijuana

Submitted by Marijuana News Earlier this month, my wife and I spent a week in Paris to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary.

The UK government, for example, has always been very conservative when it comes to the cannabis legalization issue, no matter who’s in power. Other countries in Europe...
