  1. After 125 years in business, Sears filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The retail powerhouse dates back to the late 1880s and its mail-order catalog offered everything from toys to tools to, at one point, cocaine and opium.
  2. Come for the maple syrup, stay for the weed. This Wednesday, recreational marijuana officially becomes legal in Canada. Maybe it'll finally chill those wild Canadians out.
  3.

Have a great day!
