    Why are RCMP jackbooting in city? Usually they are assigned to rural areas with no local police. Seem to have no problem with enforcing unpopular laws ...must be over paid.

      St. Peter's Road goes from the 1911 jail right out to St. Peter's Bay... Pretty sure it was in East Royalty. That being said, what difference does it make? You would likely be the one complaining the other way if nobody did anything. "Unpopular laws"?? Terribly misguided you must be...

    When you think of a government that refuses to consider common sense, refuses to look at the relative science and pays no attention to the wants of the people, you may think of a far off land. When you think of a government that considers one of earths most helpful plants an illegal drug, you might think of an evil dictator. If you think of a corrupt government that could easily turn a socially accepted underground industry into viable taxable industry, but refuses and instead puts the entire industry into the hands of a few supporters - you might think of Vladimir Putin. And if you think of business model that punishes its competition by capturing them, taking away their freedoms and caging them like animals, you might think of a drug lord in Mexico. Well.... welcome to the new realities of Harpers vision for Canada, where Canadians have no right to grow helpful harmless plants without fear of going to jail. Mean while big wig conservative's appoint senators that steal from tax payers, hand over entire industries to their buddies, while driving around Toronto drunk snorting Coke and banging heroin. Can you think of anything more idiotic than using Canadian tax dollars to turn citizens into criminals over purchasing weed from the wrong dealer. The police officers that made this arrest should be ashamed of themselves. Go do something that either serves or protects Canadians you know - its your job description. Why not try doing something productive? Why not try to get some of the cheap Oxy, Harper approved, off the streets or quit and save tax payer your pay cheque. Either option would be much more productive.

    Forget bragging about catching someone with marijuana. Do something about the pills and coke they are selling in East Royalty for example.. Been easy money for the dealers on Andrews crt.

    i agree with zxt, and i don't smoke pot, but it's pretty obvious that pot isn't responsible for the rash of armed robberies, home invasions, brazen daytime break ins, etc.

      Ya, not responsible but is only just the beginning and opens the door to everything else. As for the idiots saying legalize marijuana, ya must be smoking some good stuff cause thats just what PEI needs is more people walking around high as a kite. At least if it illegal there will be less people spaced out and harder for out children to obtain. Its easy enough for yhem ro get it now, why the hell should we make it easier?

      It's ignorant people like you that keep our province stuck in the middle ages. I smoked pot for a few years and never once tried a hard drug and I no longer smoke anything. Calling it the "beginning" is a cop-out, pardon the pun. Have fun being judgemental and ignorant, seems to be the Islander way.

    they sure cracking down on the weed, especially since the gov't is now involved with growing and selling it here soon. My personal opinion is that there is a whole lot worse going on out there besides having to waste time and money on weed…...
