Saskatchewan’s Prairie Medicinal Harvest Cup won’t go up in smoke, even if new federal regulations force it underground.
The event, which invites medicinal marijuana growers across Saskatchewan and Canada to submit tiffany’s pot sampl tiffany’s es to be judged, is entering its third year. Organizers say it will continue beyond 2013, despite a new federal law prohibiting private dwelling production.
“We were all illegal before the program, so if (they) think we don’t know where our roots came from and how to get back to them, they’re wrong. Friday through Sunday, 15 growers approximately 11 of whom are from Saskatchewan will compete for the Cup in Saskatoon.
Lundstrom, however, said it focused on more than potent pot.
“We need acceptance, and the only way to make that happen is to host events like this,” he explained.
City police say that though some individuals are legally permitted to possess medicinal marijuana, they will charge those without proper licences and will take enforcement of the event on a step by step basis.
Insp. Jerome Engele said by e mail that holders of possession licences are not to share, sell (or) give marijuana.
Those who do, he added, are to charges under the Criminal Code of Canada and are also breaching their licensing agreements. are expecting tiffany’s about 300 guests at the Cup competition at the Odeon Events Centre.
