Two Ontario men have been charged with cultivating, propagating or harvesting far more than the four cannabis plants allowed for personal use, after Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) discovered the limit had been exceeded by 2,400-plus plants.

Although recreational cannabis is legal in Canada, adults are only allowed to grow up to four plants per residence (not per person) for personal use.

As part of its investigation, members of the OPP’s street crime unit executed a Cannabis Act warrant earlier this week on a property southeast of Fenelon Falls in the City of Kawartha Lakes, according to Global News. There, the officers discovered 2,428 cannabis plants in various stages of growth.

An OPP tweet noted the seizure means the team successfully stopped “an illegal grow operation.”

The bust was not met with much support on Twitter. “The amount of crack and fentanyl in the Kawarthas and this is what you focus on,” noted one comment in response to the OPP tweet. “The promise of cannabis legalization was to supposedly free up police officers to pursue other more serious offences,” added another.
