But before you go hunting for free marijuana you should know that you might be committing a crime. According to Const. Brian Montague, people without a marijuana licence shouldn’t play @HiddenWeedYVR’s little game.
Sounds like all 6 of today’s prizes have been found. Please tweet a pic when you find a prize! Remember, always share your weed.

Montague said: “For the person who finds it, possession without a licence is illegal. The act of delivering it to a place for someone else to find would be considered trafficking in a controlled substance under the CDSA … While we use a lot of discretion when it comes to marijuana, the fact that the person could be trafficking to a 12- or 13-year-old, if they are the ones who find it, could draw some unwanted police attention.”
