LOS ANGELES — New York real estate heir Robert Durst, who days ago was sentenced in a two-decade-old murder case, has been hospitalized after contracting COVID-19, his lawyer said Saturday.

Defense Attorney Dick DeGuerin said he was notified that Durst was admitted after testing positive for the coronavirus. DeGuerin said he didn’t know Durst’s condition and was trying to find out more details.

Durst, 78, was sentenced Thursday to life in prison without a chance of parole for the murder of his best friend more than two decades ago. Durst, who has numerous medical issues, sat in a wheelchair with a catatonic stare during much of the sentencing hearing.

“He was very, very sick in the courtroom,” DeGuerin said Saturday.

He was convicted in Los Angeles Superior Court last month of first-degree murder for shooting Susan Berman point-blank in the back of the head at her home in December 2000.

The killing had been a mystery that haunted family and friends for 15 years before Durst was arrested in 2015 following his unwise decision to participate in a documentary that unearthed new evidence and caught him in a stunning confession.

DeGuerin said Thursday that Durst will appeal.

Bold graphics and a checkerboard floor feature in a Superette marijuana shop in Toronto, which was created by the brand’s in-house team in collaboration with Canadian designer Emily Robinson.

Based in Toronto, Superette was founded in 2019 by entrepreneurs Mimi Lam and Drummond Munro. The company now operates six brick-and-mortar shops in Canada and plans to open locations in the United States next year.

The shop is located within a complex made from shipping containers

Aiming to make “buying cannabis as enjoyable as consuming it”, the company has prioritised creating products and retail environments that have a nostalgic feel. Bodegas, pharmacies and hardware stores are among the influences.

The retailer’s latest shop is located at Stackt Market, a shopping complex made of shipping containers in downtown Toronto. Billed as the company’s first “SuperMarket”, the new 800-square-metre space has a look that mimics a classic grocery store.

A checkerboard floor defines the space

It was designed by an in-house team in collaboration with British Columbia’s Emily Robinson Design.

“SuperMarket follows the blueprint of a quintessential neighbourhood grocery store, from the interior design and customer flow to merchandising and product assortment,” the

Inside its doors on Wednesday afternoon, Balagan Cannabis was bright and festive. Its owners shuttled around the room, preparing glass display cases of concentrates and marijuana flower for their Thursday soft opening and Saturday grand opening. Over a speaker, Ms. Lauryn Hill sang about That Thing, and on the TV, Israeli basketball team Hapoel Jerusalem faced off in a Champions League matchup against Spain’s Bàsquet Manresa.

Hapoel’s starting small forward is Willy Workman. The Northampton native took Amherst College to a Division III National Championship in 2013, but now he plays in Israel alongside former NBA first round picks Thon Maker and Anthony Bennett.

It’s been five years since voters passed Prop. 64 (Cannabis Legalization).  A year ago, headlines announced approval of cannabis sales in Chico.  And the year before. Despite an adopted ordinance the process is mired by a hostile council, and important components have been intentionally sidelined.

Left in limbo are those who had invested in applications and facilities to distribute, test or manufacture; all legal under ordinance but suspended by behind-the-scenes maneuvers. And possible retail storefronts, determined by population, were reduced from four to three with no explanation.

When these three storefront businesses are chosen – if ever – they must stock cannabis produced, tested – and taxed – from other areas.
Twenty-nine applicants have paid $10,803 each to vie for a Chico storefront.  Most have been paying rent for two years (the review process is site specific). Yet, it is likely another year or more before the magical city sorting hat finishes its work.

Where does this hostility come from? Councilmember Sean Morgan was asked about legalizing, he said “my answer is not only no, but hell no.” He and Councilmember Reynolds hijacked the ordinance almost a year ago, reworking the resolution on fees. Veterans and seniors in need be damned.

One of Arizona’s largest locally-owned producers and purveyors of high-quality sun-grown cannabis, Sunday Goods, is set to open its second-ever dispensary retail location in Tempe in early November.

The search is on for three suspects who were caught on camera breaking into a Norman medical marijuana dispensary. 

Management at Back Door Dispensary & Drug Co. said Norman police were dispatched about 4:15 a.m. Tuesday to their location near Interstate 35 and Main Street.

Before breaking in, surveillance cameras catch the three as they appear to case the store.

“The video shows them peaking in, kind of looking around, accessing the situation, casing it,” said Rick Akram, general manager of Back Door Dispensary & Drug Co.

Minutes pass before one of the three throws a piece of concrete through the front glass door. The thieves are then seen getting right to work.

“They didn’t break any of my displays, they didn’t take anything else but the flower,” said Akram. “I think the destruction was almost as much as the product they stole. They weren’t in here very long. I’d estimate approximately 30 seconds.”

That 30 seconds was enough to take thousands in dispensary product.

Wednesday operations were shut down as store managers were left to pick up the pieces.

“I certainly don’t believe it was a previous employee of the dispensary or any of our patients,” said Akram. “Yes, one person went straight back and knew right
