Weed may be legal in Canada, but it’s still a no-no to sell it online.
Six Nova Scotia men found this out the hard way when they were charged Wednesday for running an online marijuana distribution network, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The arrests of the men — who range in age from 22 to 33 — came after RCMP officers raided their homes, where they seized a “considerable” amount of marijuana, “offense-related properties and $20,000 in cash,” per the RCMP.

Although a July 27th court date has been set for the men, RCMP officials say their investigation isn’t over yet. They expect to file additional charges against the men in coming weeks, they say.
When it comes to marijuana, are you confused over what’s legal and what isn’t? Is it unfair for something to be illegal in one place, but legal in another?
