Renowned Canadian marijuana activist Dana Larsen has pledged to give away more than million pot seeds to help Canadian medical cannabis patients everywhere plant and grow their own “victory gardens” this spring.

Larsen was a founding member of the BC Marijuana Party, the Canadian Marijuana Party, and founded the Vancouver Dispensary Society. He also founded Sensible BC — the largest grassroots cannabis reform organization in Canada. Additionally, Larsen worked as editor at Cannabis Culture Magazine for ten years, and is a co-founder of the Vancouver Seed Bank.

In a landmark court ruling out of British Columbia last month, Canadian medical marijuana patients won the right to homegrown cannabis. The ruling, issued by Federal Judge Michael Phelan, found that Health Canada’s current framework for a medical marijuana industry is unconstitutional and that Canadian patients’ right to grow their own medicine should be restored.

According to his new website, OvergrowCanada.com, Larsen has one million high-CBD cannabis seeds and 100,000 high-THC cannabis seeds that he is willing to give away. The seeds will be delivered in packages of 10 or 100 to Canadian patients who sign up via the website.

“Grow them on your balcony or your windowsill, grow them in your front yard or the back, but let us finally bring our plants out of the closet and into the fresh air where they belong,” Larsen wrote in his impassioned call for action.

“It doesn’t matter if you plan on using the buds. It doesn’t matter if the plants are female or male. It doesn’t matter if they grow 10 feet tall, or just 10 inches. ‎ All that matters is that Canadians join together, to plant these seeds and claim our right to grow….”
