NS Cannabis Buyers Club temporarily down

by tedsmith » Tue Aug 23, 2011 4:21 pm

Founder of the Halifax branch of the Cannabis Buyers Clubs of Canada, John Cook, has suffered a heart attack and is in hospital recovering. After 10 years of providing cannabis to people suffering from permanent, physical disabilities and diseases on the east coast, the club has no choice but to temporarily cease operating until a replacement can be found or John gets back on his feet again.

The staff, growers and members of the CBC of C in Victoria send their best wishes to John, his wife and their 2 daughters.

We will keep you posted.

I hope for a quick recovery for both John and the club.

As the song states, “We get by with a little help from our friends”

A dear friend in Nova Scotia needs our support. John Cook, a tireless
advocate for medicinal
cannabis and Director of the Halifax Outlet of the Cannabis Buyers’
Club of Canada, has had
a heart attack. Unfortunately, the blockage is unable to be repaired
surgically. John is also
suffering from inflammation of the heart and fluid build-up around it
(Pericarditis) which could
last months. John is out of hospital, but faces a long recovery
process at home. One of his
medications is almost $100 a pill. While he recuperates, neither John
nor his wife Krista, who
has been by his side the entire time, can work and are unable to
perform any of their normal
day to day activities.

It’s ironic that a man who has supported so many of us - through our
pain and illness - is now
the one in need of support.

Currently, the Cooks are struggling to keep their heads above water.
If we, as a community,
could pool our resources, John and Krista and their two girls, Megan
and Hannah, can get
through this stressful time and focus on a full recovery.

A fund has been set up that will allow us to support the Cook family.
Contributions needn’t
be large, because, as we all know, every little bit counts. We are
hoping to help alleviate the
financial burdens currently being faced by the Cooks. Contributions
can be made at any TD
Bank across Canada. The account is in the name of Sharon Hebb, a close
family friend and
Godmother of Megan, who is spearheading this effort. The account
number is 366390716 .

If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Hebb via e-mail at

Also, the Cooks believe strongly in the healing power of positive
thoughts and wishes. If
you would like to reach out to them, please send your messages to his
wife, Krista Cook on
