Your voice for marijuana reform.

  • It's time to change the law

    Public opinion on marijuana has changed, and we need our laws to reflect common Canadian values. It's time for us to have sensible marijuana policy.

  • Let's grow the vote

    The federal election is an important opportunity to have our voice be heard on this issue. From the national debate to the ballot box, we have opportunity for real change.

We’re closer than we’ve ever been before, but we need your support.

We are Sensible BC

We want to place marijuana regulation in the hands of British Columbians.  However, there are a number of roadblocks that we need to resolve before we can accomplish our goal.  To realize our vision we will need to:
  1. Remove Marijuana from the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act

    The Controlled Drugs and Substances Act is Canada’s federal drug control legislation. By removing marijuana from the Act we place the regulation in the hands of the provinces, which would allow BC to officially control and regulate the sale of marijuana just like it does with alcohol.
  2. Implement sensible marijuana regulations here in British Columbia

    Creating a provincial regulatory system would allow us to create a made-in-BC marijuana policy.  Provincial control would allow BC to build off of lessons learned from controlling the sale of alcohol and tobacco while also drawing on the growing body of international best practices for marijuana.

Our latest campaign

Federal Election 2015

2015 is a crucial year for marijuana policy in Canada. Two of the major political parties, the Conservatives and the Liberals, have made it a key election issue. That is great for us - it gives us the opportunity to foster debate about the future of Canadian marijuana laws, and activate our teams in key swing ridings in the election.

One of our strengths as an organization is people power. In the referendum campaign we connected with hundreds of thousands of British Columbians in direct, one on one conversations. Election organizing is all about having direct contact with citizens - so our experience as a movement is invaluable.

Help make our new website look great!

We are in the final stages of revamping our website, and are looking for images that our members and volunteers may have of canvassers and campaigners ‘out in the field’. We have some great images, but we need more!

Specifically, we are looking for images from tabling at events, street canvassing, door to door canvassing, and basic public engagement. Perhaps if you were at the conference, you snapped some shots of learning in action; perhaps you have shots from the referendum campaign at a community event - these are all gold!

MMPR Court Case Update

As we approach the one year anniversary of the injunction to protect the patient’s right to grow marijuana, the federal government is in court right now challenging that decision.

This case is important for anyone who wants to see the end of marijuana prohibition in Canada. It’s about preserving a patient's right to legally choose how they get their own medicine.
