A high-profile marijuana activist in the early stages of a Canada-wide seed give-away tour has been taken into custody by Calgary police, along with another man, during the second stop of the tour.
Dana Larsen's goal was to give away a million cannabis seeds to Canadians to plant on public and private property as part of a multi stop tour he calls OverGrow Canada.But police had other plans at the Calgary event, only the second stop in the tour after Kelowna."It is bullshit," said Travis Donald, who attended the event.
"It is just a plant that people use medicinally and otherwise for thousands of years. Our government still chooses to oppress the plant that gives all these people the relief they are looking for and it is less harmful than alcohol by any means so I don't see why people are still going to prison," Donald said.
"It is unjust."
The event had been publicized and about 150 people showed up at the Days Inn on Macleod Trail South Wednesday night.
