POT TV – The Canadian Press caught footage of police pressure on an open air cannabis market in Vancouver BC.
Why are cannabis arrests still happening, and how is it affecting Vancouver’s Opiate Substitution Project? The Canadian Press spoke to Neil Magnussen, director of Vancouver’s Cannabis Substitution Project, about recent raids on an open air cannabis market.
During the worst overdose epidemic in the country’s history, and months away from a so-called federal legalization bill, police are still treating the cannabis community like second-class citizens and cannabis like a dangerous substance.
After supposedly weeks of investigation which included undercover officers and ‘up to 30 officers on two days,’ police raided the market, making numerous arrests. Protestors returned later in the evening and the next day to continue their protest of unfair cannabis laws.
