Pot activist Dana Larsen to announce BC NDP leadership plans
Dana Larsen, a former leader of the BC Marijuana Party, says he will make an announcement Wednesday regarding the BC NDP leadership.
The founding editor of Cannabis Culture Magazine and former NDP candidate has a news conference planned for 10:15 a.m. at 1182 Thurlow Street in Vancouver.
"This province needs leadership that respects and listens to the community and that makes sustainable decisions based on evidence, not ideology. The BC NDP must be the party of ideas, not simply opposition" said Larsen, in a news release.
"On Wednesday, I will announce my intentions for the future of the BC NDP and the future of this province."
Larsen was a founding member of both the Marijuana Party of Canada and the BC Marijuana Party. In 2001, he became the Leader of the BC Marijuana Party. In 2003, Larsen resigned from both Marijuana parties and joined the New Democratic Party.
In 2008, Larsen resigned as the federal NDP candidate for West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country after video surfaced of him driving after using marijuana and hallucinogenic drugs.
