The Ontario government is one step closer to its goal of overseeing cannabis sales and distribution in the province and shutting down the province’s popular but illegal dispensaries. Ontario’s Cannabis Act, 2017 gives the provincial government full reign of the cannabis industry. Ontario’s proposed Cannabis Act, 2017—presented by Attorney General Yasir Naqvi in Queen’s Park today—follows through with legislation that gives the provincial government full reins of the cannabis industry.
Liberal MPP for Hamilton Ted McMeekin is looking into restricting where medicinal cannabis growers will be able to set up greenhouses when the product is grown in mass quantities. McMeekin, who is the former provincial agricultural minister of Ontario, told the Hamilton Spectator that industrial-sized greenhouses should stay away from land that’s fit for cultivation. “You shouldn’t be building greenhouses on class 1 agriculture land,” McMeekin told the paper.
Veteran Cody Lindsay can credit the Canadian military for helping and hindering him in equal parts. Without his training and experience as a cook in the army, the 34-year-old Ottawan wouldn’t have developed the culinary skills he currently uses to teach others how to cook with medicinal marijuana in healthy and nutritional ways. As the Wellness Soldier, Lindsay is known amongst veterans and marijuana activists for his cooking demos at cannabis expos across the country.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
