Members of Sensible BC' s campaign rolled into Richmond Monday afternoon to light up interest in its bid to de-criminalize marijuana.
One of the group's local representatives, Corey Skinner, told the News he has been surprised from where some of the support has materialized.
Skinner, who accompanied Sensible BC's "Cannabus" to the Lansdowne SkyTrain station to try and enlist support from commuters, said many putting their names to paper were average, middle-aged moms.
Skinner speculated that was an expression of wanting the province's slow-moving and overburdened legal system to get relief from minor pot possession cases and concentrate on more serious criminal issues.
Sensible BC has until Dec. 5 to compile to 400,000 or so signatures to trigger a referendum to consider the group's Sensible Policing Act that seeks to de-criminalize marijuana and work towards legalization.
