Pot activist visits Merritt
Leading B.C. pot activist Dana Larsen visited the Merritt Desert Inn on Thursday to talk with locals about marijuana decriminalization.
While the media was the only stakeholder to show up, he said he had as many as 25 people attend his meetings during his B.C. tour.
Larsen promotes pot decriminalization and his Sensible Policing Act, which would amend the Police Act and would prevent the application of law enforcement to address simple possession charges.
Larsen said he will organize a bigger campaign for launch just prior to the provincial election in May.
He ran unsuccessfully for leadership of the B.C. New Democrats. He also owns the Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary in Vancouver.
