    A TERRACE man has organized a province-wide tour of a medical marijuana advocate.

    Travelling in a borrowed motorhome, Barry Prince is taking Nova Scotian Rick Simpson on a journey beginning Aug. 21 in Nanaimo and ending Sept. 6 here in Terrace.

    “That’s 4,500 kilometres in 14 days,” says Prince of a schedule covering Vancouver Island, the lower mainland, the Okanagan and east to the Kootenays.

    It’s something Prince says he would never have imagined doing even six months ago.

    But then, thanks to the internet, Prince has become a believer in the medicinal use of marijuana and its various extracts [cannabinoids].

    “This has nothing to do with legalization although I’m in favour of it. This is about scientific studies into the beneficial effects of marijuana,” says Prince.

    “You type that into Google and you’ll come up with 1.5 million sites.”

    “The system is failing us. The medical system is failing us. It’s not working. All they want to do is give you prescription drugs. Drug interactions are the biggest killer in North America.”
