Cannabis Possession: Criminal Charges


Cannabis may be legal but there are still rules that can land you criminal charges if you’re possessing it. 

Whitney OPP stopped an SUV on Post Street in South Algonquin Township back on December 19th, and charged a 22 year old South Algonquin man with having cannabis readily available, but also charged him with a criminal offence, for possession of more than 30 grams of cannabis in a public place.

He was issued a court notice for an appearance in Killaloe court on January 30th and the cannabis was seized.
