Burin Penin­sula mo­torists charged for im­prop­erly trans­port­ing cannabis

The Southern Gazette - - Classifieds - MARYS­TOWN, N.L.

Cannabis may be le­gal now in Canada, but there are nu­mer­ous reg­u­la­tions sur­round­ing its trans­porta­tion and use.

Two mo­torists on the Burin Penin­sula learned about one of those laws in re­cent days, ac­cord­ing to a re­lease is­sued by the RCMP on Tues­day, Oct. 23.

Be­tween Oct. 20-22, po­lice stopped two ve­hi­cles in the re­gion and charged the driv­ers un­der the Cannabis Con­trol Act for hav­ing cannabis that was not prop­erly sealed.

One of the driv­ers was a 21-year-old fe­male from Gar­nish, while the other was a 20-year-old male from Marys­town.

A quan­tity of the drug was seized, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease.

The RCMP is re­mind­ing the pub­lic that, to trans­port cannabis in a ve­hi­cle, it must be in the pack­age in which it was pur­chased, with an un­bro­ken seal, or not be read­ily avail­able to any­one in the ve­hi­cle, un­less the per­son who is be­ing trans­ported is in a bus or taxi.
