4-20 celebration in Calgary has a ‘different feel’ after prohibition lifted

April 20, 2019

Michael Franklin, Web Producer – CTV Calgary
April 20 has always been an unofficial holiday of sorts for cannabis users to enjoy their product and fight for its legalization. But even now that the drug is legal, some experts say the battle isn’t over.

Legalization is a Lie: A protest at Vancouver Art Gallery

By

“We’re re-taking the Vancouver Art Gallery as the location to protest cannabis prohibition! In early 2018, Trudeau’s goons (Operation Apprentice) ended 20+ years of activism at the Art Gallery. Police attacked peaceful activists and vendors, seizing cannabis, oils, and edibles. Several charges were laid and many activists were banned from returning to the spot. We were told to “go home” and “stop protesting” because we supposedly got what we wanted — legalization. […] This isn’t legalization, it’s Prohibition 2.0! In Canada we have the right to gather and peacefully protest in a public place. On October 17th, “legalization day”, let’s meet at our traditional protest spot and voice our thoughts about Bill C45. Bring your signs, flags, cameras, and, of course, your joints!”

The Ontario Liberals have allowed the LCBO to sell Cannabis and accessories through the Ontario Cannabis Retail Corp. The Cannabis community is being taken over by political gangsterism. We are being forced out of an industry by the people who rallied against us. We will not allow it.

When the OCRC location’s and the dates are announced, we will update
