According to media reports out of Canada, Cannabis As Living Medicine’s (C.A.L.M.) Toronto location was raided by police today.

“We know so far that over the last hour police are all over the Queens St. location,” said Chris Goodwin, manager of Toronto’s Vapor Central. “They’re in the alleys, in the building – a patient that tried to go in was told it was being raided and under police control, and that he couldn’t get his medicine there. Some of the cops were saying rude comments. It was check day, so all staff were in, and they had the most product as today is the busiest day.” C.A.L.M. issued the following public statement:

ATTENTION CALM MEMBERS:

Earlier this afternoon our downtown location was raided. Although we are still piecing together the information, at this time we are temporarily closed. We will hopefully be resuming our services in the coming days so please check this forum regularly for further information.

We may be organizing a pro-CALM community gathering in the coming week, your attendance would mean a lot to everyone and the medical cannabis community as a whole.

We thank you for your concern and appreciate your continued support. If we stand together nobody can take our club away from us.

We’ll be seeing you again really soon,

CALM

Apparently, our neighbors to the north are also dealing with medical marijuana discrimination and persecution. No matter what country a person lives in, they should always have the right to use marijuana for medicinal purposes (and recreational in my opinion), without constant harassment by law enforcement. Because of the POINTLESS raids that were conducted in Toronto today, thousands of patients have no medicine.

  1. down with calm on

    You claim 2500 members are now unable to get medicine. That is just the kind of bullshit CALM would have you believe. But the TRUTH of the matter is that if everyone of those 2500 poor poor members are legit, than they can access medicine at any one of the dozen or so clubs now open in Toronto. The application process is pretty much the same for every club.
    CALM is not the only game in town. Hasn’t been for years. And in actuality, it’s NEVER been the only game in town. So, just get a grip. Most of those members are members of other clubs, so it’s not THAT big a deal. The hysteria and level of exaggeration certainly does nothing to dissuade the stereotyping of cannabis users as paranoid zealots, though.

    Of all the exaggerations, none is more blatantly wrong than the bullshit claim that CALM has ” brought nothing but good to 99% of their membership for the last 12 years.”

    Your numbers are VERIFIABLY wrong. Way way wrong.

    And btw, people have a right to complain about being treated like shit. Sick people who are often poor, don’t deserve the abuse they have experienced at CALM. And, as far as I can tell, it’s pretty common for someone to get pissed off about spending money somewhere, only to be treated like shit. Just because that may not be YOUR experience, doesn’t mean it isn’t true for many others. I, in FACT, know many many people who absolutely despise CALM for the way they’ve been treated or the way they have witnessed others abused by CALM staff and owner.

    And while I was considering going to this rally, if you are the kind of person supporting them (abusive and threatening), then I wouldn’t want to go either. Unlike the bots at CALM, I can still look past WHO was arrested, and be supportive, because it’s the cause I care about. Principles before personality. Unfortunately, if the tables were turned, CALM wouldn’t support the cause, unless it directly impacts THEIR bottom line. If anyone at TCC, or HUMAN were busted, I highly doubt Neev would give a shit. He’d be happy in fact. Less competition.. With CALM, it’s actually the power and money that is their main concern. Not the cause. Oh, and if you think Neev wants cannabis legalized, you would be wrong. It would seriously damage his profit margins if that were to happen.

  2. OMG get a life! These people charge top $ for the crappy weed they sell and invented priemum pricing for weed! Give me a break!

  3. Yup thats it i am a rat and working with the cops…give your head a shake! Smoke another joint dude… maybe its because you are working for calm and worried about your free weed?

  4. oc is a troll on

    hey oc you posted the same comment on another site at least come up with something new.

  5. Nearly three-quarters-of-a-century after it was made illegal; half-a-century after it was proven to be practically harmless – why is it still a crime to possess and smoke marijuana?

    Here is a list of ten famous people who died as a result of nicotine abuse:

    Humphrey Bogart
    Edward R. Murrow
    Nat King Cole
    George Harrison
    John Huston
    Noel Coward
    Betty Grable
    Walt Disney
    Gary Cooper
    Peter Jennings

    Here is another list. Ten famous people who died from alcoholism:

    Billie Holiday
    Jack Kerouac
    Truman Capote
    Lorenz Hart
    Veronica Lake
    Bix Beiderbecke
    Montgomery Clift
    Dylan Thomas
    John Barrymore
    Errol Flynn

    Now I’m going to ask you to name for me one celebrity who has died from too much grass.

    Go on, I’m waiting….

    Couldn’t do it, could you? Don’t feel bad. Neither could I. Not only am I not aware of anyone ever dying in that manner, I am not aware of it happening in all recorded human history. If someone can come up with one example I’ll shut up forever on the subject. Is it a “gateway drug” as they never tire of reminding us? An argument may be made that it is. But so is Pabst Blue Ribbon. Also, ciggies and booze have absolutely no medicinal value. Marijuana has. Think about it.

    Do I advocate its use? I don’t. I haven’t smoked pot in over twenty years and have no intention to take up the habit again any time soon. But at the dawn of the second decade of the twenty-first century the question is screaming to be asked: Why are we still having this stupid conversation?

  6. PS Like HELL I will be attending a pro-CALM community gathering to support CALM! Good luck finding others as I know people are not happy with CALM. They way they have been treating customers is disgusting! LEARN!

  7. Its about time! CALM is such a rip off and has not done sick people any favours! Greed is not a good thing and Karma always wins! I hope they learned their lesson now!
