Larsen took to Facebook to say he’s pleased with the amount of attention his project has received so far, and hopes it continues to generate discussion on cannabis policy in the country.
“Some of the Liberal MPs have called in the RCMP to take away their free gram of cannabis,” Larsen wrote. “But this MP in Ontario also gave the RCMP his free book, as “evidence.” I hope the officers pass it around the police station and maybe learn about the wonderful history of cannabis in Canada.”
At least one MP has ignored the government’s recommendation though. On his Twitter account, Beaches-East York MP Nate Erskine-Smith thanked Larsen for the gift, but said he hadn’t yet smoked it.
“On a serious note, thousands of Canadians are charged every year for marijuana possession,” Erskine-Smith wrote. “A sensible policy is long overdue.”
