CANNABIS CULTURE – Neil Magnuson has been evicted, raided, arrested and just generally persecuted by the Vancouver Police Department. Now the VPD have threatened to impound his vehicle.
Magnuson provides help and support to people fighting drug addictions in the Downtown East Side (DTES).
BUT he does this without a license.
Magnuson is The founder of a low-barrier dispensary called the Healing Wave and an alternative addiction action group known as the Cannabis Substitution Project (CPS).
“How could we possibly stop, why on God’s green earth should we!? To satisfy greed and corruption that would deny poor suffering people needed relief and options?” Says Neil Magnuson, founder of Healing Wave dispensary and the CSP.
The Vancouver Police Department has ordered an end to CSP’s operation on the Downtown East Side, citing the unlicensed distribution of unregulated cannabis.
“Legislation states that a seller must be licensed by the provincial government and that product for sale must be sourced through the Provincial government to ensure the safety of the product, and ultimately, the consumer. The unlicensed sale of cannabis is illegal,” VPD’s Constable Tania Visintin stated.
Magnuson has been forthright with Councillor Rebecca Bligh and local officials. Magnuson’s attorney submitted documents
