‘I’m impressed’: Sask. police see little change since cannabis legalization

It’s been a year to the day since the legalization of cannabis in Canada and in Saskatchewan, not much has changed.

“I’m impressed. Generally, I think our police service has seen that people have been responsible with the use of cannabis,” said Evan Bray, Regina police chief.

“We haven’t seen any real escalation in the number of calls for service, the number of impaired drivers, and the amount of public consumption which is a real positive thing.”

When it comes to people driving high, Bray said they haven’t made any charges to date.

“We have had a couple of impaired drivers where we expect it’s been impairment due to both, alcohol and cannabis, but there are no impaired driving charges strictly due to cannabis,” Bray said.
