A Canada Post distribution centre was instrumental in the New Brunswick RCMP seizing cannabis edibles, some of which looked very much like popular candy, and dried flower earlier this week in Dieppe. The RCMP did not specify how much candy was confiscated, but did report that officers also discovered “a significant amount of illegal dried cannabis.” The shipment of illegal cannabis products were identified at a Canada Post distribution centre, staff at which informed the Codiac Regional RCMP on June 1. The several packages of the products originated in B.C. and were destined for a number of locations in N.B. and PEI, according to police. “The cannabis candies seized would be indistinguishable from regular candies that are sold in stores,” says Cpl. Hans Ouellette of the New Brunswick RCMP, pointing out that “one package imitates a popular brand of candy” while another was in an unmarked resealable bag. Ouellette emphasized “the only legal way to obtain marijuana products is to purchase it from a licensed provider.” According to Canada Post, drugs, including narcotics and other controlled substances “can only be mailed in certain circumstances and subject to various restrictions.”
