A cannabis plant in every yard?
That could be the slogan for Dana Larsen’s Overgrow Canada pot-seed campaign.
The marijuana advocate led a project this year to give away 5 million cannabis seeds this year; last year he and his colleagues gave away 2.5 million.
“We’re encouraging people to plant them openly,” he said Sunday. “The goal is to normalize cannabis growing.”
It’s a continuation of a civil disobedience campaign, following on from the growth of bong shops and dispensaries in many communities across Canada.
One of his contacts spotted a pair of cannabis plants growing in the flower beds around Vancouver city hall. That was a great thing to see, he said.
“I want to be in a country where growing a plant in your front is a common thing,” he said.
