The Brantford Cannabis Club is a month away from hosting their second annual 420 Rally.
According to a press release, the rally will take place in Victoria Park from 1p.m. – 6p.m., and will include a number of musical acts, speakers, and a moment of silence for those “who have been victimized by cannabis prohibition including those who have been needlessly charged or imprisoned for possession, medical users who have faced stigma and those who could have received benefits from cannabis but declined due to the criminalization of the substance in Canada.”
According to Brittni Mitchell, event co-ordinator for the Brantford Cannabis Club, this year’s rally is also working to raise awareness for Brantford’s Self-Help Addiction Resource Centre (SHARC) and the stigma attached to people living with addiction.
“The Brantford Cannabis Club enjoys helping the Brantford community,” explained Mitchell. “SHARC is a new self help drug rehabilitation centre and we want to give it all the help it deserves. SHARC believes in harm reduction and this is one of the many reasons that we support them. We love the energy and the love they have for this community.”
According to Mitchell, The Brantford Cannabis Club is focused on combating stigmas, like being lazy, associated with the use of marijuana.
