2001 was the biggest year for sales of Marc Emery Direct Seeds. It sure needed to be! All the profits that year (as was the case every year), $700,000, were directed to non-profit projects in the US, Canada, and around the world. The two most demanding on money were Pot TV, which needed $270,000 for just 2001 alone with no revenue stream at all, and the British Columbia Marijuana Party provincial election campaign of March to May 2001.
CANNABIS CULTURE - Ask anyone who knows and they will agree: Cannabis Culture Headquarters has played host to some epic parities over the years. Maybe it's something about the 115-year-old brick building in downtown Vancouver (307 W. Hastings St.) that CCHQ calls home. Maybe it's something about the fine marijuana strains being consumed by joint, bong, vaporizer and every other way imaginable by eager party-goers.
Abbotsford South is ground zero in the B.C. Marijuana Party’s war against prohibition.

CANNABIS CULTURE - It's jam night at the Vapour Lounge in downtown Vancouver. The host, Adam Bowen, is onstage with a group of scruffy funk rockers, pounding out the bass line and singing improvised lyrics.
CANNABIS CULTURE - The Prince of Pot Pinball Machine, designed by friends of imprisoned marijuana activist Marc Emery, is on display now at Cannabis Culture Headquarters in Vancouver.
Some would call me a bandwagon jumper – and they would be absolutely right – but I must to give shout-outs to the Vancouver Canucks, who will go head-to-head tonight with the Boston Bruins in game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Good luck from the Pot Block boys!
I knew Michelle Rainey for about 10 years. We first met in 1999 when she started working for Marc Emery. I was living at Marc's house on the Sunshine Coast at the time, it was a very busy place with many people staying, coming and going all the time. Marc was looking for a housekeeper, someone to buy groceries, make meals, clean up and keep his household running smoothly.
