In the past, Sensi Seeds has been vocal in regards to Bertrand Rambaud’s case. We support UFCM iCare and its medicinal cannabis-centred symposium, the only one of its kind in France. We also support our friends from the association, and during the last few months, we have been standing behind Bertrand Rambaud as he faced the French judicial system after being arrested in possession of cannabis, and prosecuted despite needing it for medical reasons.
This time it is the association itself, UFCM iCare, that is asking for your help and support on behalf of their co-founder. The last instalment of Bertrand Rambaud’s case against the French system was relatively positive: recognized guilty without a sentence, he attended his appeal court date in September. Indeed, M. Rambaud is not exactly satisfied with the “guilty” verdict and refuses to be considered a criminal for doing everything in his power to survive. Yet, we have learned a few days ago that another court rejected his pleas, which is why the association is going to Supreme Court, to settle the issue and possibly, to poke at the establishment, known in France to carefully avoid discussing anything in relation to cannabis use for therapeutic reasons.
This is why UFCM iCare is currently raising funds in order to pay for the incoming Supreme Court fees.

Sensi Seeds supports UFCM iCare and Bertrand Rambaud. It is our hope that the European medicinal cannabis scene will continue to evolve in the coming years, and that France, notorious latecomer in everything cannabis, will finally catch up. Together, the cannabis community can achieve this!
