Canada’s federal police want people to know that black market weed is bad, so they launched a handy little campaign warning of the perils of illicit dispensaries.
The only problem is, most of the telltale signs they listed sound pretty great.
In a tweet, the RCMP cautioned, “This holiday season, know the signs of an illegal online cannabis retailer. If you buy cannabis online, buy from a licensed retailer.”
The signs listed are:
- Requests payment by e-transfer or cryptocurrency
- Packaging/products appeal to young people
- Referral bonuses, sign up bonuses, or other promotions
- Ships anywhere in Canada
Pretty freaking horrible, isn’t it? They even made a nice green graphic to boot.
