Driving Law with Kyla Lee: Episode 47


This week on the Driving Law podcast, I speak with cannabis law activist Dana Larsen once again about the 4/20 protests in Vancouver, and whether there is any increased risk in cannabis impaired driving around the 4/20 festivities. Dana Larsen and I also talk about cannabis impaired driving rates generally, and whether there is a spike in cannabis impaired driving accidents surrounding 4/20. The results of the research may surprise you.

Then, I am joined by Paul Doroshenko to discuss changes to BC’s civil forfeiture laws and how those may result in the seizure of vehicles from innocent people.

I’m also pleased to announce that the Driving Law podcast is now part of the Cannabis Media Collective!

Vancouver criminal lawyer Kyla Lee speaks with Drex on The Shift with Drex about Canada’s new legislation to introduce pardons at no cost, and with no waiting period, for simple cannabis possession convictions.

UBC Law Women’s Suit Drive – Thank You

In mid-February I helped to organize a suit drive at Allard Law to support female law students. The event was a massive success.

Thanks to donations from numerous members of the bar, members of the public, and people as far away as Brandon, Manitoba, we were able to provide suits to dozens of female law students to try to offset the costs of entering the profession. We also received numerous cash donations, which I matched with a personal donation to give away $800 in gift cards to help purchase suits and work clothing.
