We recently saw a series of powerful and thought-provoking tweets by Canadian cannabis activist Dana Larsen who posed the question “What if coffee and caffeine was banned tomorrow?”

Dana is the previous editor of Cannabis Culture in Canada, working alongside Marc Emery from its launch in 1994 until 2005.

He is also a very prominent cannabis activist, with a strong political career working towards legalisation in Canada.
