Pot Bar Arthrology Busted


-Machine Guns vs Marijuana-

On Wednesday June 11 at about 8pm the Vancouver Pot Club “Arthrology” wasbusted by Vancouver Police.

A club member explained how the police wielded 9mm machine guns, pointingthem at club members heads as they shouted obscenities and threw people tothe ground.

About 26 people were in the club, yet no arrests were made, and apparentlyno-one was charged.

No minors were on the premises. No illegal substances were found other thanmarijuana.

-Reasons for Moving In-

When the Harm Reduction Club was busted, police spokesperson Anne Drennantold the media that the reasons they chose to move in were that: the clubwas in a residential neighbourhood, they sold to minors, and theyadvertised publicly.

None of these factors applied to Arthrology. Arthrology was not in aresidential area, was scrupulous about not selling to minors, and did notadvertise.

It’s also worth noting that in 1992 Daniel Posse was shot to death by gunwielding Vancouver Police during a marijuana raid on a home.
