The Edmonton Police Service debuted a promotion to explain how to legally transport cannabis. Put your skunk in the truck explains the rules around transporting cannabis.
“You can drive around with your weed, just don’t have it in reach,” reads a recent Tweet on the police service’s Twitter page.
“Cannabis must be transported in a sealed package, out of reach of everyone in the vehicle. Know the rules: http://Edmontonpolice.ca/cannabis,” the message continues.
According to a report, more than 60 per cent of charges laid since cannabis became legal were for not properly transporting it. Many people are buying the product legally, but transporting it home improperly.
The fine is $115.
