Huntsville OPP Writes Weed Ticket on First Day of Legalization
OPP Twitter photo of a ticket given to a driver for having weed next to their person in a vehicle.
Huntsville Ontario Provincial Police wrote a ticket today for someone having weed in their vehicle.
It is the first day for legal pot in Canada, but basic rules still apply.
The ticket, an image of which was posted on Twitter, shows the offense happened at 9:45am this morning on Ontario Street, with the offense reading “drive vehicle or boat with cannabis readily available.”
Similar to a driver having alcohol within reach, also a ticket, consumption is not the issue. The fact it is available to the driver is the problem.
The post itself reads: “Public safety is our commitment!! It is NOT ok for a driver to have marijuana beside them while operating a motor vehicle. Arrive alive, drive sober!!”
