Drivers sidelined for smoking pot

Marijuana in vehicles

Two drivers were banned from their vehicles for 24 hours after police smelled marijuana from inside their rides.

The drivers were stopped at 10:45 and 11:30 p.m. July 29 on Cadboro Bay Road and both admitted to smoking pot recently. They each turned over the remaining pot and received 24-hour licence suspensions, and had their vehicles towed. Police decided against forwarding charges of possession against the men.
