A Calgary driver has been fined $230 when BC Police found him with a Pot Pipe within reach of the driver’s seat at a roadside check on the Lions Gate Bridge on November 6th.
The police wrote the 23 year old driver a ticket for violating the cannabis control and licensing act. This marks the very first time West Vancouver Police have issued a ticket under the new B.C Cannabis Act.
The pipe wasn’t lit – and presumably neither was the driver. But the law still prohibits the use of cannabis by anyone while driving or in a vehicle.
