The Calgary Humane Society accepts donations from the native hashish group after the provincial most cancers heart declined the reward

The club was informed at the time that AHS was working on developing a cannabis donation policy. However, a statement made to Global News earlier this week stated that donations from the cannabis sector are still not being accepted.
“AHS does not direct the types of gifts foundations may accept, but has worked in partnership to facilitate board discussions and provide tools to help foundations make decisions about accepting gifts,” the said Explanation.
The cancer center appeared to be a natural complement to the donation. Wong reported that Beaver not only did a lot for the cannabis club, but was also “very knowledgeable and helped many people who had cancer”.
However, after the club was rejected, it reached out to another worthy recipient, the CHS. Beaver loved animals and they gave him comfort when he was “going through a really tough period in his life,” said Jessica Bohrson, senior manager of communications at CHS, according to Global News.
The CHS now has a bench dedicated to the beaver and has also planted a tree in memory of another member of the cannabis club.
Wong reported that the club raised more than $ 2,200 to honor Chris LaFrance, another member who died of cancer and was treated at the Tom Baker Cancer Center. The hope is that the center can raise money on both Beaver and LaFrance’s behalf, Wong said.
Medical cannabis helped Beaver while he was undergoing treatment, she said. “It helped a lot, but with the stigma of cannabis, the stigma overrides the medical aspect,” she argued.
