FIRST HE MAILED DIME BAGS to Canadian members of Parliament. Now British Columbia weed activist and former New Democratic Party candidate Dana Larsen is pledging to send free weed seeds to anyone wanting to plant a “victory garden.”
He says it’s his way to put pressure on the feds to keep their election promise and end pot prohibition. “It is civil disobedience against the unjust pot prohibition laws that has gotten us to the verge of legalization,” Larsen wrote in an announcement. “Let us finally bring our plants out of the closet and into the fresh air where they belong.”
Are you in Canada and want Larsen to send you your seeds? Visit this website and fill out a quick form. From there, he’ll mail 10 or 100 seeds to anyone who wants to grow “openly and freely, preferably on your own property.”
Recreational marijuana use is still illegal across Canada, but Larsen isn’t all that worried. He once mailed Premier Christy Clark a half ounce of Purple Kush and delivered all 184 sitting Liberal MPs a gram of ganja along with his book, an illustrated history of cannabis in Canada. When he did, Toronto law enforcement said an investigation into his pro-pot stunts would be considered a waste of their time.
Canada’s ministry of public safety is not commenting on Larsen’s current seed giveaway, but a government spokesperson confirmed the move is still technically illegal.
