Vancouver has quickly become the "Amsterdam" of North America. It is jokingly called "Vansterdam" by the locals. The Marijuana Party of Canada is headquartered here and because of "safe space" laws, people can go bring their own marijuana to various "safe space" locations within Vancouver and smoke their weed. Marc Emery is the Vancouver icon to the marijuana movement for Canada. The Canadian cannabis advocate started a retail business for cannabis seeds and also started a movement that has reached worldwide recognition. Although marijuana sales are illegal in Canada, possession of small amounts of marijuana is a summary conviction offense (somewhat similar to a misdemeanor in the US), and is punishable by a fine or jail term.
