Canadian support for legalization has declined slightly since last summer, according to a recent online poll by Navigator Ltd. (Mark Blinch / Canadian Press files)As cannabis legalization chugs forward through the Senate, the proportion of Canadians who support the idea has declined slightly. That's the big takeaway from fresh polling by consultancy Navigator Ltd., which conducted an online survey of 1,200 respondents aged 19 and older between February 5 and February 19.
Whether its for medical purposes or just for pleasure, using cannabis can be a highly subjective experience. With an enormous number of different cannabis strains available under a plethora of perplexing names, users can be hard-pressed to figure out exactly how using Granddaddy Purple differs from using UK Cheese or Bubblegum Kush. The cannabis industry is trying to solve that problem, in part, with mobile apps that can collect and distribute information about the effects of different strains.
Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries, which will be Manitoba's wholesale supplier of cannabis after legalization, is officially looking for product. In a call for listing posted online Tuesday morning, MLL is seeking information from legal Canadian cannabis producers that will have "recreational cannabis available for purchase prior to July 2018."
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".
