RCMP approached the man on Monday at the Marine Atlantic terminal, and found him in possession of approximately three pounds of marijuana and $850.

The accused was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, and failing to comply with a condition of an undertaking.
