Take, for instance, what is currently happening in a Supreme Court case involving a former weed banker named Owen Edward Smith. Smith was called to Canada’s Supreme Court because the Crown wants to appeal his acquittal and convict him of being a drug dealer.
Back in 2009, Smith was one of the leading cannabis bakers for the Cannabis Buyer’s Club of Canada (now operating under the name Victoria Cannabis Buyers Club), an organization that sold edibles and oils to medical marijuana users. Unfortunately, Smith was eventually charged because it was later revealed that only 5-10 percent of his clients were actually licensed medical marijuana users, obviously a big no-no under Canadian law.
