CANNABIS CULTURE – Friends of Canadian cannabis activist Michelle Rainey held a memorial tribute in her honor at BC Marijuana Party Headquarters on Thursday, October 28. Hundreds tuned in to our LIVE webcast to remember Michelle and celebrate her life.
A devoted activist and friend to many in Vancouver’s cannabis community and around the world, Michelle passed away on October 20 after fighting a brave battle with cancer.
Michelle worked with Prince of Pot Marc Emery during the booming seed business years and became a dedicated activist and avid contributor to Pot-TV, Treating Yourself Magazine, and other pot publications while serving as the co-founder and vice president of the BCMP. Michelle was arrested and became one of Marc’s co-accused when his store was raided by the DEA in 2005. Like Marc, she was threatened with extradition to the USA, but was fortunately given a conditional sentence in Canada without jail time after arranging a plea agreement with American authorities.
A sufferer of Crohn’s disease, Michelle fought tirelessly for the rights of medical marijuana patients and became known for her popular “MEDICINAL” t-shirts, medpot informational packages, and her Medicinal Michelle YouTube series. She was a passionate, hard-working and loving person who always had a big smile and contagious enthusiasm. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
