It didn’t take long for a Canadian to be ticketed for smoking cannabis while driving

Weed is now legal, but a number of things surrounding the recreational drug remain illegal.

That includes driving while high and it absolutely includes smoking while driving.

One person found that out the hard way on the morning of legalization.

Winnipeg Police shared to their Twitter account that they handed out a ticket for consuming cannabis in a motor vehicle on a highway early this morning.

“Just like alcohol, consuming cannabis is legal,” said the tweet, “and like alcohol, consuming it in your vehicle is **not**.”

The ticket was for $672, but the police department didn’t reveal whether the guilty party was allowed to keep driving or if their car was towed.
