Man Arrested For Running A Cannabis Vending Cart

The public may be used to seeing ice cream carts or beer carts at events on hot summer days, but not carts selling illicit substances.

Police in Victoria, British Columbia, say they arrested a man pedaling a marijuana cart that was decorated with the name "420 Delivery" in large type on the sides.

Officers noticed the man pedaling through the city’s downtown core last week.

Police say the 22−year−old man in charge of the vending cart was found in possession of 150 grams of marijuana.

The man was released on a promise to appear in court next month. 

Police are recommending charges of one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Latest.

After making progress on marijuana reform, the legalization movement has stalled in two New England states. Cannabis became legal in Vermont last July, but state lawmakers did not put a regulated market for marijuana in place at that time. So while adults in Vermont can possess, grow and consume cannabis, they can't buy it legally.

Can we see some ID please?
