Steve Kubby Update

Chris Bennett talks to Steve Kubby. On July 15th, the Federal Court of Canada dismissed the judicial review application of refused Kubby’s refugee claim. Steve, a familiar face to Pot TV viewers, and his family came to Vancouver in 2001 and claimed refugee status on the grounds that he required medicinal marijuana to treat his adrenal cancer. Madame Justice Sandra Jean Simpson said in her ruling that Mr. Kubby’s fear of imprisonment for using marijuana in the United States does not provide a sufficient basis for refugee status in Canada.
