VANCOUVER – Two people have been charged as a result of raids last year on a drug user advocacy group that Vancouver Police say trafficked illicit substances in the Downtown Eastside.

Police say in a statement that members of the Drug User Liberation Front had spoken publicly about trafficking heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamines.

They say charges of possession for the purposes of trafficking were approved on May 31 against 28-year-old Jeremy Kalicum and 33-year-old Eris Nyx.

More coming.
