‘Kind Kup’ brings dozens of vendors, educators, activists from across Canada to Winnipeg.
If you’re passing through St. Vital this weekend, you might see a strange formation of low-hanging clouds.
Tokers, educators, activists and vendors in the budding medical marijuana industry are in Winnipeg for the “Kind Kup,” or what’s being billed as Winnipeg’s first-ever Cannabis Cup, to showcase the sticky green stuff and the paraphernalia used to smoke it.
Unlike other Cannabis Cups, which are meant to bring medicinal users together to revel in weed culture, all proceeds from the Winnipeg event are heading out west to pay for legal fees for John Conroy. The B.C. lawyer is in the middle of a legal battle to allow medical marijuana patients to grow and use their own supply.
