RCMP bust illegal B.C. cannabis lab

Kelowna Cap News is reporting that "Cannabis may now be legal in Canada but altering the plant using chemicals to make oil is not. Harvard Place off Airport Road in Chilliwack. A male in his 20s is facing charges after approximately 250 pounds of dried marijuana and 30 pounds of marijuana resin/oil were seized in a warehouse in Chilliwack on Wednesday."

"Police say a male in his 20s was arrested at that location for illegal production using chemicals to alter cannabis under Section 12(1) of the country’s new Cannabis Act." AYFKM? The RCMP still don't get the intent of the law. Pot is not illegal. Focusing on pot instead of crack, crystal meth or fentanyl is a waste of tax dollars. People are dying from fentanyl not pot. When will they ever get that? This is why we need to get rid of the RCMP in Surrey. The RCMP are out to lunch.


  1. They don't care about the intent of the law. "They are the police and can do whatever they want." They will tell YOU what the law is. The fact of the matter is, these guys are stuck in the past and can't adjust, it's an ego thing, it irks them that something they used to be able to bust people for is now legal and people who used to have to fear them, now do not have to. They like being feared, as any bully does. Doubtless some of those who have had to live in fear have been less than graceful in victory and have taunted a few cops about it, but that's not entirely unexpected, and the man with the badge should be the bigger man of the two about it. Some people do not react well to loss of power. Just an example of what I've been saying all along, we have a lot of the wrong people wearing a badge, they think THEY are the law, not servants of it. Well, now the law is changed, but they imagine themselves the masters, rather than public servants who merely carry out the will of "We the People" as codified in law. The law changes, you have to change with it. That simple. And that hard for someone who is the wrong person for the job.

    Now see, the RIGHT kind of person on the job would shrug, say "ain't nothing", ADJUST TO THE CHANGE and go bust some fentanyl dealers who are selling poison and killing people. "Serve and Protect" not "Servum US".

  2. perhaps RCMP officers bully others because they themselves are bullied on the job. let us not forget over 300 people signed class action suit regarding sexual harassment, etc. Not a great work environment.

    Yes, it is more important that police departments deal with fent., meth. etc. these chemicals can kill.

    1. Yes, Depot won't change so we need to get rid of it.
