Medicinal marijuana advocates suing after Vancouver Grow Busters raid licensed grow-op

By Hempology | November 15, 2005

A trio of medical marijuana advocates is suing the City of Vancouver for $400,000 after police raided a federally licensed indoor grow operation set up in the basement of a rented Vancouver home.

“It’s surprising with all this talk of liberal policies in Vancouver — the safe injection sites, legal brothels and so forth — that something that is legal, that is authorized by Health Canada remains taboo,” said Michael Maniotis, one of three men who filed the lawsuit against the city in B.C. Supreme Court. Mr. Maniotis, Yoram Adler and Dale Waldman say their Charter rights were violated when Vancouver’s Grow Busters drug team, acting on a search warrant, raided Mr. Waldman’s home on Sept. 8. Mr. Adler is licensed to grow up to 49 marijuana plants for personal use. Messrs. Adler and Maniotis are Mr. Waldman’s tenants.
