Pro-Marijuana Campaign Falls Short, But Sensible B.C. Head Says The War Isn’t Over

Dana Larsen: ‘We’ve created a lot of momentum for the next time.’

CANADA:  He admits he’s lost this pot battle, but Dana Larsen is still convinced the decriminalize-marijuana war will be won in B.C.

For 90 days Larsen and his Sensible B.C. canvassers have been asking British Columbians to sign on to have B.C.’s marijuana laws put to a referendum — and more than 200,000 have done so.

But it’s back to the drawing board for the pro-marijuana crowd, as even that hefty number fell short of the rigorous standard that only the Fight HST campaign has attained here in B.C.

“We haven’t given up on this,” Larsen told The Province as he prepared to present “somewhere between 200,000 and 220,000” names on a petition to Elections B.C. on Monday — Day 90, the final day of the campaign.

    Prohibition began in Parliament ~ it must end there. Repeal prohibition. It didn’t work last time either. The Lib’s petition http://petition.liberal.ca/end… is backed up by the draft policy paper – https://bc.liberal.ca/files/20
    This policy looks quite sensible compared to the current state of affairs.
    It also represents intelligent thinking based upon science and evidence
    for the most part.
    Young Liberals pushed for the Resolution to be passed in 2012 and the
    Policy paper to be drafted in 2013. Now it is time to make sure this
    proceeds.
