Health Minister Rona Ambrose sends letter to mayor, warning dispensaries are illegal
The City of Vancouver is looking at new rules to regulate the booming retail marijuana business, including a $30,000 licensing fee to help recover the cost of enforcement.
The Prince of Pot was no doubt the main attraction in front of a hometown crowd as an estimated 15,0000 marijuana enthusiasts gathered in downtown Vancouver to celebrate the bud.
Canada’s self-proclaimed “Prince of Pot” says Vancouver’s massive 4/20 rally should send a potent message to the federal government about legalizing marijuana.
In the small back courtyard of his marijuana dispensary on East Hastings Street, Dana Larsen, a well-known pot activist, talks candidly about a subject he knows well: B.C. bud.
No one has been seriously injured
April 20, 2013. The air around the Vancouver Art Gallery is thick with pot smoke.
I often get asked about what I mean when I say that our Sensible BC campaign wants to "decriminalize" cannabis in BC. Some people tell me they don't like the idea of decriminalizing, and that we must legalize cannabis instead. Other people say they don't want legalization, and will only support a decriminalized model. Some people think that "decriminalization" means that people in possession of cannabis will still get a punishment, like a ticket or fine.
The Sensible BC campaign has been getting some of the amazing media coverage over the past few weeks! This month alone, Sensible BC has been covered in over 40 newspaper articles, as well as many stories on the radio and TV. We've even been covered in newspapers in Norwegian and Chinese! You can see most of our media coverage at http://SensibleBC.ca/news All of the stories have been supportive and friendly to our campaign. Indeed, we've had several high-profile endorsements!
