Pot mailed to MP offices picked up by RCMP
Marijuana activist mailed pot packages to all Liberal MPs
All four of P.E.I.'s MPs received medical marijuana in mailings from marijuana activist earlier this month, as did Liberal MPs across the country.
Charlottetown MP Sean Casey sent the package from Dana Larsen — a B.C. marijuana activist — directly back, before receiving a message from the national party recommending contacting the RCMP.
That's what the other three Island MPs – Lawrence MacAulay, Wayne Easter and Bobby Morrissey – did. Police picked up the packages from their home constituency offices.
Local RCMP told CBC News to contact RCMP in Ottawa for comment.
"RCMP is aware and is assessing this matter, with the assistance of local enforcement authorities across Canada, to gather information and retrieve the packages sent," Ottawa RCMP responded in an e-mail.
"We will not be commenting any further at this point."
- An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated the packages were sent by the Marijuana Party. In fact, they were sent by activist Dana Larsen.Jan 12, 2016 9:24 AM AT
