Even though police raided and made arrests just a couple days earlier, cannabis vendors boldly returned to sell their products at Robson Square on Tuesday (Jan. 23.)
“Bring it on,” vendor Colton Mulvae said. The man popped up his tent to sell dried marijuana along with other cannabis merchants and activists.
The group told CBC/Radio-Canada that they will continue to sell cannabis products regardless of the arrests and seizures on Sunday (Jan. 21).
They said they returned to the site to sell edible cannabis which cannot be found at common licensed dispensaries.
“We’re here because there are people that are jonesing for their drugs and they can come here and we can help them,” Neil Magnuson, director of Cannabis Substitution Project, told local media News 1130. “It feels so good to help people. You cannot stop doing that.”
So far, Vancouver police have seized more than nine pounds of dried marijuana, 23 pounds of cannabis edibles, more than $4,000 cash, drug paraphernalia and tents from the area.
