Medical marijuana patients in Canada are free to grow their own plants after a Federal Court judge ruled the current laws forbidding that are unconstitutional.
Under former prime minister Stephen Harper, the Conservative government banned cannabis patients from growing their own supply, forcing them to purchase weed from licensed producers. Previously, patients were permitted to grow under the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations (MMAR) program.
The restrictions were challenged by four British Columbia residents, who claimed they were a violation of Charter rights. On Wednesday, Judge Michael Phelan sided with the plaintiffs in a Vancouver courtroom. He has suspended his decision for six months to give the Liberal government time to create new legislation. In the meantime, Canadians with licenses to produce marijuana under the MMAR can continue to do so.

A Goat Behind The Wheel of A Car Makes People Go Crazy

The goat's owner, Ashley Robertson, told INSIDE EDITION she had just collected the goat to take home to her farm. But on the way, she realized she needed to stop at Home Depot for a toilet gasket and briefly left him alone inside the car.

"He managed to squeeze in the front seat while I was in the store," she said. "He turned on the wipers and hazard lights, drank an old cup of McD's soda and ate a nutty bar and its wrapper. He then proceeded to poop on the seat before returning to the back of the car."

She only realized that the goat had been spotted by passersby when her sister shared the video with her and said: "This is something you would do."

Robertson said: "I watched it and realized it WAS me!"

She is both "shocked and amused" by the video, she said.

The goat is now back at Robertson's farm, where he is happily living with four female goats, chickens, dogs and cats.
