Medical Cannabis Scam Alert: Nimbin University Cannabis Community at Mt Burrell

“Nimbin University” - a community cannabis research and medical treatment campus at Mt Burrell was launched at Nimbin Bush Theater at a Medican Workshop on Saturday, 15th April. Charmaster Dolph Cooke appeared on stage spruiking the ambitious new project and offering miracle cannabis cures to 10,000 proposed members of Nimbin University's Cannabis Community.

It costs only $1 to bite the little hook.
Buyer be warned! Scam alert!

Warm endorsement by Nimbin Hemp Embassy, the Medican workshop and a glowing feature in the Nimbin GoodTimes lend a thin veneer of authenticity to "Nimbin University Cannabis Community", accessing a big network with a $1 hook.
Dolph is confident that changes in drug laws are imminent. He boasts that his "uni" will soon be flying high on windfalls of cash expected from a market boom in medical cannabis. “It’s not legal yet.” Dolph admits, “But we don’t care, we’re doing it anyway!”

Buyer Beware! The sick and vulnerable who are eager to receive forbidden weed for only $1 should note that the contact address for "Nimbin University" is 3222 Kyogle Rd, Mt Burrell, NSW — notorious home of the Bhula-Bhula land scam. The ongoing land-share fraud is headed by Mark Darwin, who, flaunting the motto, “do no harm”, is currently confronted by legal action by angry, defrauded investors.


Nimbin University - The Hidden Agenda
What Dolph did not say in his launch of "Nimbin University" is that pulling strings in the background are the unseen scam-masters of chameleon disguise; "sovereign citizens", followers of marketeer Mark Darwin who uses the pseudonym "Dummass Boofhead" and loan shark Adrian Brennock, known as "AB". Co-creators of the Bhula-Bhula fiasco, they're always found luring financiers with a “worthy” ideology linked to a pioneering business with a profitable data-base.
You’ve got to give credit where it’s due, masters of misleading marketing, Mark Darwin and the Boyz certainly have audacity and imagination! No longer satisfied with acquiring million-dollar properties by selling residential lots on land without development approval, the Boyz have now expanded their Mt Burrell scam to include mass-marketing medicinal cannabis to sick and vulnerable people. The illicit medicinal herb is falsely advertised as licensed industrial hemp, and with sleight of hand Dolph's "Cannabis Community" links directly to the land fraud.Dolph Cooke

The new pop-up-frontman for the fraud, Dolph Cooke, is a local producer of biochar who grows a small hemp crop on the property neighboring Bhula-Bhula. Handing out flyers and signing up subscribers, Dolph began his presentation at Nimbin Bush Theatre by stressing his opinion, “There is no good and evil; no right and wrong”.
Dolph hopped in the cot with the bad boyz and says the land-scam’s “all good”, as he happily profits from it. Referring to time he spent institutionalized, he said, “I don’t have feelings like the rest of you.” He has no empathy for those defrauded by his new patrons.

Dolph is calling for 10,000 people to join Nimbin University. It costs only $1 to bite the little hook, and the vision is ever expanding. Dolph says :
"Included in all this activity should, obviously, be a teaching facility where aspiring healers can come to learn their trade, and go back into their communities doing the remarkable work knowledge of this plant’s powerful healing actions allows. Thus a spin off from all the fibre being produced from hemp could be a hemp paper mill and clothing factory, with several more people required to have that aspect running smoothly. And if we have our own paper being made, and resident practitioners and intellectuals, we might as well establish our own on-topic newspaper. And if we’re going to do a paper, we might as well have a media studio. And if we’re going to have a media studio, we might as well run some form of radio/tv station."

Nimbin University websites nimbinuniversity.com and nimbinuniversity.org point to organicmedicalcannabisaustralia.org, where Dolph has awarded himself a certificate from the "Cannabis Community University" for "life membership to the Cannabis Private Community With all member privileges awarded for his contribution level".

Mt Burrell Land Scam Exposed in Criminal Prosecution

An alleged multi-million-dollar investment fraud offering fake shares in a Mt Burrell “Eco Village” was challenged in a private prosecution at Murwillumbah Court, NSW, on March 28th. Founders of the land-share initiative, Mark Darwin and Adrian Brennock with company directors Steven McSween and Richard Moate, were charged with criminal fraud and larceny. They declined to appear in court but were represented by solicitor Ian McKay, instructed to plead “Not Guilty." Court Orders set a schedule for filing evidence.

The private prosecution was initiated by defrauded investor Gi Linda, who also filed a statutory demand on the company Wollumbin Horizons Pty Ltd, starting winding-up procedures to stop the land-share scam. With an investigation by Coomera Police of the alleged fraud and civil litigation by defrauded investors in preparation, the criminal prosecution was initiated to fast-track justice. The aim is to achieve restitution for creditors with urgent claims now totaling over $1.5 million of failed investments, plus delinquent loans, misappropriation of superannuation, defamation and destruction and theft of property.

Supporting evidence documents a fraud that began in 2014, involving sale of lots in Bhula Bhula  Communitywithout advising potential investors that the advertised land-share sites were located on environmentally protected land where multiple occupancy was not permitted. 

The community failed, leaving angry investors bereft in 2016 yet the audacious fraud was continued by Darwin and Brennock, with an ambitious new venture — Mt Warning Eco Village — an even larger proposed “intentional community” at Mt Burrell. Misleading advertising offers residential lots with optional cabins on 3,500 pristine acres with lilly-clad lagoons and mountain views, where it is clearly known by the promoters that habitation is prohibited, since no developmet approval exists and much of the proposed "village" lies within rainwater catchment boundaries.
