Brexit complicates the Gibraltar feud between Britain and Spain

(U.S. Edition) The federal deficit has risen to $779 billion, which is the biggest it has been since 2012. But as we look a little deeper, the deficit isn't just big, it's also historically strange. Starting on Wednesday, Canadians will be able to legally buy cannabis for recreational use both online and in standalone stores. The Canadian government is hoping that the market in place freezes out criminal competitors. Then, we discuss The Rock. No, not that Rock. We mean Gibraltar – a self governing British territory that was captured from Spain centuries ago. Spain has been fighting to get it back since. And now, Brexit is a factor. Today's show is sponsored by GAIN Capital Group (gaincapital.com) and PayPal (paypal.com). (10/16/2018)
