For Immediate Release

Victoria, B.C.: At the Thurs evening Victoria city council meeting this week, Ted Smith will have lots to discuss as he requests the city once again proclaim March 17 as International Medical Marijuana Day. With new federal regulations coming into effect at the end of the month, the status of compassion clubs like the Victoria Cannabis Buyers Club will be an important topic to debrief council on. An update on the appeal of the VCBC bakery trial will also be included in the 5 minute presentation.

International Medical Marijuana Day has been celebrated in Victoria since 1995, with a wide variety of events marking the occasion. The most notable of these was back in 2000, when Ted was arrested trying to give out 420 pot cookies at the downtown public library. He was eventually convicted of trafficking THC and given a 1 day jail sentence, making him a cookie convict. Now the day is much more subdued, with the society simply hosting an annual silent art auction at the VCBC. The public is welcome to bid on the art, which is on display at 826 Johnson St until the auction ends at 4:20 pm on Mon March 17, otherwise known as St. Fatty’s Day.

The next day, lawyer John Conroy will be in Federal Court in Vancouver filing an injunction against the government’s plan to stop issuing new licences to grow cannabis for medical purposes, forcing patients to buy off new Licensed Producers. If that injunction fails, the International Hempology 101 Society has been planning a national protest on Parliament Hill for April 1.
