In January 1996, he started the Cannabis Buyers’ Club of Canada, supplying herb, edibles, and topical products to people suffering from permanent physical disabilities. As well as hosting annual conventions at post-secondary schools, Ted teaches a free, non-credit lecture series at the University of Victoria.
