It Only Took One Hour for Canada to Issue Its First Ticket for Smoking Weed in a Car
On Wednesday recreational marijuana legalization went into effect across the great northern expanse of Canada. About an hour later, police in Winnipeg wrote their very first ticket for smoking it in a car. That was fast.
Around 1 a.m. early Wednesday morning, a ticket was issued during a traffic stop for consuming cannabis inside a vehicle, CBC reports. "An hour into legality, and something illegal," Winnipeg Police Service traffic division Insp. Gord Spado said, probably with a heavy sigh. And so a Teachable Moment was born:
"So … this happened early this morning: A Consume Cannabis in a Motor Vehicle ticket was issued. Just like alcohol, consuming cannabis is legal - and like alcohol, consuming it in your vehicle is **not**".
