Drug ar­rest at Holy Trin­ity

Simcoe Reformer - - NEWS -

A teen was ar­rested this week at Holy Trin­ity Catholic High School on sus­pi­cion of ped­dling mar­i­juana.

Nor­folk OPP were sum­moned to the school over the noon hour Thurs­day.

Fol­low­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion, a 17-year-old male was charged with pos­ses­sion of cannabis for the pur­poses of sell­ing con­trary to the Cannabis Act.

Back when mar­i­juana was il­le­gal for recre­ational pur­poses, the charge would have been “traf­fick­ing.”

Const. Ed Sanchuk, spokesper­son for the Nor­folk OPP, says the ter­mi­nol­ogy has changed to “sell­ing” now that Ot­tawa has le­gal­ized mar­i­juana,

The ac­cused can­not be iden­ti­fied un­der terms of the Youth Crim­i­nal Jus­tice Act.
