July 1st is Cannabis Day

CANNABIS CULTURE – Canadian cannabis lovers will gather to celebrate their marijuana freedoms at the Cannabis Day Rally on July 1, 2009 at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Smokers and activists will meet for the annual protest between Noon and 6pm to pay their respects to the cannabis plant, call for an end to marijuana prohibition, and get completely blazed.

“Canadians should come to celebrate their quickly disappearing cannabis freedoms,” Cannabis Day organizer Jacob Hunter told Cannabis Culture. “It’s time to stand up and be counted for legalization and to oppose the Conservatives radical anti-pot and anti-Canadian agenda.”

Members of the Conservative and Liberal parties in the House of Commons have supported harsh new tough-on-crime legislation that would bring mandatory minimum sentences for non-violent crimes to Canada.

“Stephen Harper’s Bill C-15 seeks to put almost all pot growers in prison, even for growing only a few plants,” Hunter said. “Canadians must show the government we’re against this dangerous bill.”

This years celebration is expected to include reggae and hip-hop DJs, speeches, and various pot-related vendors tents.
