Vancouver pot activist calls for open cultivation of cannabis plants

By: Joshua, July 25, 2017

A cannabis plant in every yard?

That could be the slogan for Dana Larsen’s Overgrow Canada pot-seed campaign.

The marijuana advocate led a project this year to give away 5 million cannabis seeds this year; last year he and his colleagues gave away 2.5 million.

“We’re encouraging people to plant them openly,” he said Sunday. “The goal is to normalize cannabis growing.”z

 

It’s a continuation of a civil disobedience campaign, following on from the growth of bong shopsand dispensaries in many communities across Canada.

One of his contacts spotted a pair of cannabis plants growing in the flower beds around Vancouver city hall. That was a great thing to see, he said.

“I want to be in a country where growing a plant in your front is a common thing,” he said.

Cannabis plants growing wild aren’t any more dangerous than other plants he pointed out.

“I look at my yard, there’s morning glory taking over — it’s actually hallucinogenic,” he said. “So don’t feel there’s any concern about that. There’s no harm being near a cannabis plant.”

“Munching on a cannabis bud, nothing’s going to happen at all. It’s not actually nice to chew on, it’s not like a bright red berry that grows everywhere and is toxic to kids.”
