Journalist, Journal de Montreal
Annabelle Blais covers the cannabis industry for Le Journal de Montréal. As an investigative reporter, she exposed the poor quality of edible products that are readily available online. Her stories earned her a nomination for a prestigious Judith-Jasmin award in Quebec. Her work has also shed light on the presence and the extent of offshore investments in the cannabis industry, which in turn led to amendements of Bill 157 in Québec and raised major concerns amongst senators studying the legalization of cannabis on Parliament Hill. She is the author of the blog Autour du pot. With her sense of humor, she helps people get familiar with cannabis, the industry surrounding it, as well as the political debates at the National Assembly, in Québec City on that issue.
