Top videos for 2018: The legalization of cannabis

Counting down the top videos stories for 2018 in the Okanagan and Shuswap

Black Press Media is looking back at some of the top stories and videos of the past year in the Okanagan, Shuswap and Similkameen.

The legalization of cannabis is placed at number four in the top 10 video countdown.

A small group of people waited patiently outside the government store to be the first to purchase legal weed in Canada, with a Kelowna woman leading the pack.
