A comedy about Canada’s upcoming cannabis legalization is headed for the big screen.
Canadian company We’ll Be Over Here Productions Inc., says production has begun in Toronto on the feature film “Canadian Strain.”
Written and directed by Geordie Sabbagh, the film stars Jessica Salgueiro as a boutique weed dealer who has been put out of business by the legalization of cannabis.
Salgueiro hails from Winnipeg and is being featured at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival as a Rising Star.
