CANNABIS CULTURE – The Victoria Cannabis Buyer’s Club (VCBC) has secured a new three-year lease on their location, but Victoria Police’s “Community Safety Unit” has now threatened to sue the landlord if the VCBC remains.
This is the latest attack in a brutal history of bully behavior by Health Canada, Provincial and Civic levels of government.
And for what? The VCBC is a compassion club – a vital resource center for marginalized people to secure safe access to plant medicine.
The Club had previously sent a letter to the CSU arguing that as a compassion club they are exempt from enforcement and provide a much-needed service the community. They received a letter back from the CSU stating that under the Canadian Cannabis Act the VCBC is considered an unlicensed recreational store and must be shut down under Federal regulation.
“We are a community that creates a safe space for patients to come and explore the reality of cannabis with other patients and staff”, says Nikki Jackson, Spokesperson and Patient of the VCBC.
“We talked to many politicians and it does not seem like it goes anywhere, it seems like lots of talk and little action,” says Jackson.
