After a number of calls came in from Weyburn residents concerned about congested traffic in school zones, The Weyburn Police Service increased their presence and busted not only speeders and those not stopping at lights, but also someone who had been using cannabis.
"One motorist received the seven-day driver's license suspension and a seven-day vehicle impoundment for testing positive for the presence of cannabis," Deputy Chief Brent VanDeSype said.
He said that the amount of cannabis present in their system, however, was not to the level that it would have been considered a Criminal Code charge for impaired driving.
"If you were to compare this to something that would be like an SGI suspension for being .04 versus the Criminal Code charge for .08."
The person was also one of six motorists busted for speeding, while two others were ticketed for failing to stop at a red light or stop sign, and four others were issued tickets for vehicle registration infractions.
