Cannabis Day event marred by arrests
A Cannabis Day event in Vancouver has been marred by scuffles with police and a couple of arrests.
Bystanders say they witnessed officers descend on the gathering of about 100 people outside the Vancouver Art Gallery around noon before leading at least one man away in handcuffs.
Angry crowds followed the officers around the street corner where the man was loaded into a police van.
Vancouver police released a statement saying the man was overtly selling marijuana to young people and that he failed to stop after repeated warnings.
