NOVA SCOTIA CANADA: Once again it seems that you can’t grow Cannabis and treat licensed patients, even if Cannabis is “legal”.
At approximately 10:30am on September 5th, Rev. Daren McCormick and Rev. Kevin James were visited by the RCMP at which time they proceeded to search their property located in Loch Broom Nova Scotia Canada, where they were growing Cannabis for Patients. Rev. Kevin James explained to RCMP that they were licensed plants and who they belonged to. The RCMP produced no warrant yet they proceeded to search both outside and inside their home.
They were both incarcerated by the RCMP for growing, and trafficking Cannabis. They both remained incarcerated for 24 hours before being released. Rev. Kevin James was denied medication for seizures during the stay.
Over 1000 plants were taken by the RCMP as well as a small indoor grow. Personal items of the two men were taken in the search such as legal documents, witness lists and an antique Bow that hung above the fireplace belonging to Daren’s Grandfather, a family heirloom dating back to 1915 that yielded no threat to anyone.
The garden of Cannabis is estimated to be worth well over a million dollars plus and it has been destroyed. You can’t give back a plant that was pulled from the ground in its natural growing state!

FOR POSTING US ON THIS MAP 🙂 DOES THIS MEAN WE MADE IT TO THE BIG BOY LIST LOL
Daren Mccormick has 4 new cannabis charges, and i have 5 new charges… in last 10 days… heads up…
Q. If a patient revokes the DG status of a grower and they get caught growing anyway… say 850 plants x 4 crops a year and do it for 4 years or so…. and the patient receives zero from their garden… thats diversion…
