I don't know if "Friendly Stranger" are retail "activists" at all. They don't give anything to the movement, and Robin (owner) has cost Marc hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, having us fight in court repeatedly to prove we own "Cannabis Culture" in Canada (we own it in USA and Europe).
Robin has lost the court battle a number of times -- i.e. we WON and we own our name -- but he keeps appealing, and uses his friend/brother as a lawyer for free while we've been forced to pay enormous sums to a copyright law firm for many, many years.
As such, Friendly Stranger still claims they own "Cannabis Culture" the name and all products with that name, so I politely say FUCK YOU "Friendly" Stranger and advise Toronto folk to take their business and money elsewhere.
