Health Canada Lets American Grow, Use Pot

Vancouver — An American prospective pot refugee has won the right to smoke medicinal marijuana in Canada.

“I’m thrilled. This is all I’ve ever wanted,” said Steve Kubby yesterday, after receiving two Health Canada cards by courier giving him the legal right to grow and possess marijuana — a lot of marijuana.

Mr. Kubby, one of a growing number of Americans who have sought political asylum here from the alleged persecution of medical marijuana users in the United States, smokes a dozen joints a day.

His new, official exemption allows him to possess 360 grams of marijuana at any one time, enough for a 30-day supply.

Mr. Kubby, a 55-year-old marijuana activist with a contract to produce news for the Pot-TV Web site, has been smoking dope every day for the past 20 years.

He claims his daily usage of cannabis is a “life-and-death medical necessity” for his adrenal cancer.
