SURREY RCMP announced on Thursday the seizure of cannabis edibles and vape products following a traffic stop in the Cloverdale area.
On October 30, at 5:30 p.m., Surrey Gang Enforcement Team conducted a traffic stop with a vehicle near the intersection of Fraser Highway and 64th Avenue. During the stop police located an unlawful quantity (in excess of 30 grams) of cannabis edibles and cannabis vape products in the vehicle.
The driver, an 18-year old man, was arrested and released at the scene pending further investigation, no charges have been laid at this time.
“Cannabis and edibles are now legal in Canada, but there are limits to the amount a person can lawfully possess. Anyone trafficking cannabis products unlawfully may be charged under the Cannabis Act.” said Inspector Mike Hall, Proactive Enforcement Officer. “We want parents to see the photos of the cannabis edibles, to be aware that they can look similar to regular gummy candy which may appeal to youth, and also creates a potential for inadvertent exposure to cannabis.”
