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.”
The driver reportedly “performed poorly” on a sobriety test and was issued a 24-hour driving ban under the Motor Vehicle Act.
