Can use, but cannot possess

David Malmo-Levine, who was charged with marijuana offences in connection with running two marijuana-buyers’ clubs in Vancouver (see CC#8, Homegrown revolution), has had his conditions of bail changed.
“I had my conditions of bail changed from “thou shalt not use” to “thou shalt not possess,” says Malmo-Levine. “I was asking for my conditions of release to not conflict with police discretionary powers. Police have the power to overlook simple possession in the absence of aggravating factors. So why should I be the only person in Vancouver facing jail time if I get caught with simple possession?”
