Even if you don’t partake in marijuana, 420 is now a widely known event, even among the mainstream.
Terrace’s celebration of everything that is pot is being held at the Terrace Court.
Bob Erb is sponsoring the event, and fittingly, it’s called Erb4Herb 420.
Erb is an outspoken supporter and activist for marijuana legalization.
He says prohibition against marijuana is not effective and is bad policy.
Not only does he support legalization of marijuana, but also so-called “hard drugs,” arguing that it should be sold in a controlled manner.
This harm reduction approach has been championed by various groups in the province.
Recently, there have been warnings from police and health officials of batches of heroin mixed with fentanyl causing a number of overdoes deaths in the province.
