It’s Canada’s other Rocky Mountain high.
The resort hamlet of Lake Louise has consistently ascended to the peak of per-capita cannabis possession incidents in the country as reported by RCMP.
Since at least 2008, the mountain village of a mere 800 souls has been in the statistical clouds, with 7,938 possession incidents per 100,000 people in 2014 and 3,675 last year.
That compares to 58 and 46 respectively in the waning war on pot in Calgary.
And just up one of the most scenic highways on earth in Jasper, those numbers have also reached lofty heights at the No. 2 spot with 3,024 possession incidents per 100,000 people last year.
Just as outlandish are Lake Louise and Jasper numbers for possession and trafficking charges.
