Olympic Green: Cannabis Culture on CBC

“Faster, stronger, and at Vancouver’s Olympics, definitely higher,” CBC reporter Duncan McCue says in the segment, broadcast across Canada on the TV network’s nightly news program. “Indeed, spirits and sales are high at Cannabis Culture Headquarters.”

Reporters also visited the BC Marijuana Party Vapor Lounge and spoke with partiers puffing from Volcano Vaporizer bags who had come to celebrate at Olympic events in the busy city.

Though CCHQ and the BCMP lounge have seen increased business from the influx of Olympic traffic, many other businesses have not been as lucky, and the city of Vancouver will undoubtedly be left with a massive bill for the cost of the exorbitant Games.

“People are really going to regret that it’s kind of over,” said Marc Emery, Vancouver’s notorious Prince of Pot and husband of CCHQ owner Jodie Emery, “because now we have the tab to pay, and it’s probably going to be a big tab, and it was a great party.”

    It’s nice to see some neutral reportage of the cannabis subculture on mainstream media — the BCMP lounge is treated just like any of the other businesses :)
