A BC pot supporter and former NDP candidate has sent out a gram of marijuana and a copy of his history of cannabis book to almost 200 Liberal MPs across Canada, and he’s not worried about the police.
Dana Larsen, who was previously in the news for sending BC Premier Christy Clark 14 grams of marijuana, is anything but a stranger to this kind of self-promotion.
Larsen told the Province he knows the pot-mailing move is nowhere near legal, Although he’s totally OK with the possible threat of legal action—based primarily on the fact that he doesn’t think the police will do anything.

“It’s not legal to mail people weed… but most of Canada’s marijuana laws are made to be broken, so that’s just another one,” he told the BC newspaper.

“I don’t think any Liberal MP is going to call the police, and if they do I don’t think the police are going to come after me for a gram of pot.”

The gram of kush is bundled with a copy of his book Cannabis in Canada: The Illustrated History, which tells the story of how marijuana in Canada has come so far from its humble beginnings as just another plant, man. The book costs $10, which is roughly around the same street valor of the amazing bud it’s sent with.
When asked by VICE if any Liberal MPs had received the pot yet, the party could not confirm quick enough, although a media spokesperson called the move “very ambitious.”

Toronto police constable Craig Brister stated that the legality hovering over the issue is slightly complicated, mainly because of the various investigations that need to be done for such a small quantity of marijuana. Brister states that even if it’s obvious that Larsen mailed it, the amount of effort that would be needed to prove he sent a gram of pot in the court of law would render it a waste of time.

Brister did note, however, that if the RCMP could prove that Larsen mailed all 184 grams, it could be a major problem for him, but that the person who opened the mail is definitely not getting in any trouble.
“There’s no two situations that could be handled the same,” he said. “Like, if you found a bullet on the side of the road, you brought it home, and you called the police, I’m not going to come and arrest you. That doesn’t make sense. There has to be a level of common sense with these situations, and this clearly isn’t one that warrants a [serious reaction].”

The BC RCMP detachment was not immediately available for reply as to whether they would be pursuing charges against Larsen.
