Not everyone will be celebrating this- but it’s all part of a day’s work.

Yesterday (Wednesday September 16th) was Cannabis Plant Eradication Day in Quebec, and the SQ were in the field with choppers and chain saws.

It was a province-wide blitz aimed at dismantling illicit gardening activity in Center-du-Québec, Estrie, Mauricie and Outaouais.

The Access-Cannabis program saw officers dismantle outdoor cannabis production sites in the regions, adding to the totals of more than 27,500 plants seized and 40 arrests so far this year.

Police note that while cannabis consumption is legal, you should be buying from legitimate vendors and not supporting Quebec’s underground economy.

Illegal pot production remains an offence under the criminal code, and the SQ remains committed to disrupting the harvest period.
