From Cannabis Digest Fall 2004 (Issue #4).

The best news in the history of the CBC of C occurred when Ted and Colby’s trafficking charges from the raid at the club in Jan 2002 were stayed on Sept 7.

The decision has not been appealed by the Crown, Colby is free of all trafficking charges, and other charges from raids on March 2002 and Feb 2003 should also be thrown out. Thanks to Dr. James Geiwitz for testifying as an expert witness, giving the judge an education on the effects of cannabis and the studies regarding it’s effects. Thank-you Judge Chaperon for writing an intelligent, forward-thinking decision. Special thanks to Robert Moore-Stewart for his excellent work in defense of the CBC.

Just as this is being published, Health Canada has again changed the MMAR. We will feature these changes in the next issue. Many ATP licences are being sent in, though often we hear the unsettling news that people who have been lucky enough to have a doctor to sign the forms, have had applications returned or rejected. Nothing seems to change without support from the College of Physicians and Surgeons, which seems to be oblivious to approximately 1 million people, according to Health Canada’s statistics, who now rely on cannabis medicinally every day to stay alive.

The club has launched an independent research study on the effects of cannabis in comparison with prescription drugs. Thanks to those who have already completed and returned their forms. Proving cannabis can provide effective relief comparable to medications with fewer side effects and at less cost to the taxpayers. This cost/benefit analysis will statistically determine the financial saving the provincial government receives as people use less prescription drugs. This is the beginning of an on-going study that will eventually become a very important part of the club.

Ted has attended recent City Council meetings and has requested a research exemption for this study. This Exemption #56 would be similar to the one given to the safe injection drug site in Vancouver, which studies the benefits of allowing people to consume illegal drugs in a safe facility. This would allow nurses and other health and legal professionals to work within our facility documenting the medical, financial, and social impacts of the daily activities of the CBC of C.

The store is looking wonderful with the walls covered in new artwork. Our 2nd annual silent art auction will conclude on International Medical Marijuana Day, Nov. 15, 2004 at 4:20. The art is on display at 826 Johnson St. until November 14th. This year we are ending the auction at the Public Library (735 Broughton St.) in the Meeting Room. The room will be open to the public from 2 to 4:30 p.m., with a slide show by Christiaan Bell and hosted by Ted Smith on the history of the CBC of C and the International Hempology 101 Society from 3 to 4 p.m. The Auction itself will end at 4:20 p.m. Thanks to those who donated art.

We are going to share the delicious and nutritious Budda Ball Recipe. First you put 4 cups of Rolled Oats, 3 cups of coconut, 1 1/2 cups unsalted raw or roasted Sunflower Seeds, 3 cups Soy Protein Concentrate, and 75g. or 4 tbsp. Hemp protein. Mix thoroughly and then make a bowl shape with the mix. Add 1 cup cannabis infused olive oil and xxxxxxxx (secret ingredient*). Mix until it becomes small doughy balls, no powder should be left .Add 400g natural wild honey and finish mixing thoroughly. Roll into balls 2.5-3cm. (11/2) in diameter. Put 1/2 cup ground almonds on a plate, coat the surface of the balls to harden the surface and not loose the oil. * Secret ingredients and methods of making cannabis butter will be revealed in the next issue of Cannabis Digest.

There are more new products in the club almost every month right now. Several varieties of massage oil are being tried with good results. We are making a poultice made with leaf used for making other products. This product has never been made before to our knowledge.
