CANNABIS CULTURE – With your help, we can defend the right to fight for an inclusive cannabis legalization market, to make sure everyone can take advantage of pot peace.
Together we can create an inclusive legal cannabis market. No grower, dealer or smoker left behind!
We have a right to a cannabis farmer’s market!
We have a right to defend this cannabis farmer’s market from attacks by the police using non-violent arrest resistance tactics – “hug power”.
For more information regarding the events of July 1st, 2015, in Vancouver, please visit this link.
We are prepared to go to court to argue that the steps we took are required to force the rest of society to include the poor growers and poor dealers and stigmatized users into the new “legal marijuana” model.
The current “legalization” of medical marijuana leaves much to be desired. In terms of the users, it excludes and/or stigmatizes and/or creates unnecessary barriers for access to cannabis to teens, the poor, and those who would choose to use cannabis for preventive medicine. It also creates unnecessary economic barriers for participation in cultivation and retail.
Prime Minister Steven Harper’s “MMPR” system prevents all but millionaires from participating in the supply of cannabis, while Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson and his council have made it nearly impossible to participate in dispensing cannabis unless one is in possession of 100 thousand dollars in infrastructure and another 30 to 35 thousand dollars in licensing.
To activists, throwing 50% to 70% of users and 70% to 90% percent of the growers and dealers under the bus is unacceptable. To keep the math simple, activists in Vancouver have adopted the “no smoker/dealer/grower left behind” rule – we want our economy to be as inclusive as possible, and leave no harmless people as targets for the police. That means everyone gets a seat at the legalization table. Everyone is legit.
We are demonstrating how well the farmer’s market model works by holding it twice a year and defending it with our arrest resistance tactics – 30,000 people attend and the medical problems are less serious than Prime Minister Steven Harper’s son’s alcohol-drenched 18th birthday party! If only the Senate Report’s recommendation of 16 years old as a legal age to buy cannabis were heeded, nobody would have to risk death to participate in our Prime Minister’s son’s happy celebration! They could have a non-lethal euphoric option!
But we need your help!
A good lawyer costs money. We need a minimum of 7500.00 just to get started. With your help, we can defend the right to fight for an inclusive cannabis legalization market, to make sure everyone can take advantage of pot peace.
