'Skunk in the trunk': Edmonton police campaign focuses on cannabis in cars
Since legalization, EPS has laid 149 charges related to improper transportation of cannabis
Edmonton police have launched a new campaign focused on people who may be green when it comes to driving with cannabis in cars and trucks.
Between Oct. 17, 2018 and May 31, 2019, 149 of the 245 charges laid by the Edmonton Police Service under the Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Act were for improper transportation of cannabis. That works out to 61 per cent.
Cannabis products must be out of reach of everyone inside a car or truck. Police say the best way to ensure that is by keeping it in the trunk.
