420 A Day of Protest and Celebration: 2019
POT TV – A look back at Vancouver’s epic 2019 peaceful pot protest, the longest-running annual mass demonstration against corrupt drug laws.
What does weed legalization look like? What does drug war peace look like?
In 2018 Canada’s Cannabis Act legalized marijuana after decades of activist efforts to change the law. The move was framed by political parties as a means to protect children and stop ‘black market criminals’, as opposed to recognizing years of obvious and destructive Reefer Madness propaganda and drug war destruction.
Since 2018 cannabis-related arrests in Canada have decreased, but charges and lifelong criminal records continue. Why?
Look back at Vancouver’s epic 2019 protest, the 25th annual demonstration against corrupt drug laws, and decide for yourself: If cannabis can be used safely by thousands of people simultaneously, why have raids, arrests and lifelong criminal records continued into Canada’s cannabis legalization? Why are programs that offer safer alternatives to deadlier drugs still being blocked by The Cannabis Act? When will legalization look like this?
