Cannabis Day Protest Turns Violent

Cannabis Day is pretty much like the annual 4/20 celebrations except it takes place in Canada, and it’s on a different day… Oh, and there is usually violence and or hospitalization involved. Besides that they are completely the same though.

At this years Cannabis Day, which the website describes as “ Vancouver celebrates Canada and cannabis,” things once again got interesting when protestors, who turned up at the Vancouver Art Gallery for the event turned violent and ultimately led to four arrests.

My Dog Ate My Weed... Now What?

If this hasn’t happened to you, it’s probably because you don’t own a dog.
