Drivers must remember that although cannabis use and its possession are now permitted, there are rules governing transporting cannabis in a motorized vehicle. Similar to the rules for alcohol, if you are transporting cannabis in a motor vehicle it must be either:
- unopened (“fastened”) and in its original packaging
- package in baggage that is fastened closed and is not readily available to anyone in
The driver on this date not only had his cannabis seized by the officers he was issued a ticket under the Cannabis Control Act of Ontario for having it readily available while driving, this comes with an out of court fine of a total of $215.00.
