MONSIEUR BORIS ET LE CANNABIS, Le long road-trip vers la légalisation

MONTREAL, Jan. 18, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Just as new marijuana legislation is about to be introduced this spring, les Editions Quebec Amérique are publishing the official biography of Marc-Boris St-Maurice, founder of the Marijuana Party of Canada, the Bloc Pot, and the Montreal Compassion Center.
