About the Stop the Violence BC Coalition

The STVBC coalition includes law enforcement officials, legal experts, medical and public health officials and academic experts concerned about the links between cannabis prohibition in BC and the growth of organized crime and related violence in the province. They have come together to engage all British Columbians in a discussion aimed at developing and implementing marijuana-related policies that improve public health while reducing social harms, including violent crime.

What we do

Together, our members issue reports, do presentations, and produce a variety of other educational materials to help fuel a sustained, evidence-based public discourse. You can learn more about the work of the coalition here or by joining us on email, Facebook, or Twitter.
