CTV National News: Marijuana market concerns? Conservatives call for probe into marijuana stock surge!
Glen McGregor reports on a Liberal-appointed marijuana task force’s upcoming report that has sparked demands for an investigation. A Conservative MP is asking Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould to investigate whether a sudden surge in marijuana company stock trading two weeks ago was due to leaked information.
Wilson-Raybould is expected to receive a report Wednesday on how to create a legal marijuana system, including recommendations on where it could be sold and how to regulate its sale. The report, written by a task force led by former justice minister Anne McLellan, is expected to cover the necessary laws and regulations.
The surge in trading happened on a single day, Nov. 16, two weeks prior to the report’s release.
