RCMP Accidentally Endorse Black Market

Convenient payment options? Appealing products? Country-wide shipping? That’s illegal, baby.

 

Canada’s federal police want people to know that black market weed is bad, so they launched a handy little campaign warning of the perils of illicit dispensaries. The only problem is, most of the telltale signs they listed sound pretty great.

In a tweet, the RCMP cautioned, “This holiday season, know the signs of an illegal online cannabis retailer. If you buy cannabis online, buy from a licensed retailer.”

The signs listed are:
  • Requests payment by e-transfer or cryptocurrency
  • Packaging/products appeal to young people
  • Referral bonuses, sign up bonuses, or other promotions
  • Ships anywhere in Canada

Pretty freaking horrible, isn’t it? They even made a nice green graphic to boot.

This holiday season, know the signs of an illegal online cannabis retailer. If you buy cannabis online, buy from a licensed retailer. When in doubt, check your province or territory’s website for a list of licensed retailers: https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/drugs-medication/cannabis/laws-regulations/provinces-territories.html
