CANNABIS CULTURE - Friends of Canadian cannabis activist Michelle Rainey will be hold a memorial tribute in her honor at BC Marijuana Party Headquarters on Thursday, October 28. Tune in to our LIVE webcast starting at 8pm Pacific time.
A devoted activist and friend to many in Vancouver's cannabis community and around the world, Michelle passed away on October 20 after fighting a brave battle with cancer.
Michelle worked with Prince of Pot Marc Emery during the booming seed business years and became a dedicated activist and avid contributor to Pot-TV, Treating Yourself Magazine, and other pot publications, while serving as the co-founder and vice president of the BCMP. Michelle was arrested and became one of Marc's co-accused when his store was raided in 2005. Like Marc, she was threatened with extradition, but was fortunately given a conditional sentence without jail time after arranging a plea agreement with American authorities.
A sufferer of Crohn's disease, Michelle fought tirelessly for the rights of medical marijuana patients and became known for her popular "MEDICINAL" t-shirts, medpot informational packages, and her Medicinal Michelle YouTube series. She was a passionate, hard-working and loving person who always had a big smile and contagious enthusiasm. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
Please join Michelle's friends and admirers for a gathering on Thursday night to share memories and more. Those in Vancouver who knew Michelle can attend at 307 West Hastings Street on the third floor, and people everywhere else can watch the LIVE webcast of the Memorial Tribute to Michelle Rainey from the BC Marijuana Party Headquarters.
