‘Odour of cannabis detected’ on erratic driver, police issue 24-hour driving ban

The Powell River RCMP say officers smelled pot on an impaired driver before taking them off the road.

At around noon last Thursday, police responded to a report of an erratic driver in the 7300 block of Duncan Street. 

The vehicle was seen moving slowly, swerving, and crossing over the centre line.

Officers tracked down the vehicle a short time later and spoke to the driver. 

They said that while speaking to the driver, “an odour of cannabis was detected.”
