In 2014 Raymond Lee Hathaway was growing his own Medical Cannabis plants.
Health Canada sent a partially filled out affidavit, as well as a demand letter stating that Hathaway should immediately destroy all of his plants.
He did not take Health Canada up on the offer.
“As a cannabis patient who came under attack by the Harper government I began to prepare to defend my rights as a patient. My education in the legal field and my experiences with access to medical cannabis caused me to focus on the legal actions patients could take if the right to access came under attack again.”
– Raymond Lee Hathaway
Hathaway filed sixteen (16) Human Rights complaints against a series of current, and former, public servants. He has now been given a hearing date of September 25, 2018.
