Getting Pulled Over with Legal Cannabis in Mississauga

House of Cannabis Stores in Toronto have Some Do's & Don'ts for You

House of Cannabis Store Location Canada

Getting pulled over with cannabis products in the car is a stressful thought for many people. However, if you haven't been using them before driving (we hope you haven't), and you purchased them from a legal cannabis store like House of Cannabis, then you shouldn't have too much to worry about.

Of course, you could avoid many of the issues that occur by skipping the drive to and from out cannabis stores in Toronto, by ordering weed delivery in Mississauga for any cannabis products you'd like to pick up. We'll bring everything right to your door, so you never even need to put all the supplies in your car.

Unfortunately, whether it's right after restocking in-store, or because you're taking some of your cannabis products away with you for some adventures on the go, if you have cannabis in your car, you could find yourself in this predicament someday.

Thankfully, there are a few tips that you can follow (other than ordering weed delivery in Mississauga) so cannabis products don't stress you out any time you choose to take them with you on a road trip.

Let's start by talking about a few things that you can do ahead of leaving to make sure any interactions you have with the police are smooth and painless.

Things You Can Do Ahead of Time

There are some things that you can do before you ever find yourself in the position of being pulled over with legal cannabis in the vehicle, which will make the experience easier and less stressful on yourself.

Have Your License & Vehicle Registration Handy

Clean up your glove box and keep your license and vehicle registrations easily accessible, so that when the officer asks for your information, you can give it to them quickly without having to waste time awkwardly digging around for it in front of them.

This will make you feel less stressed when the officer comes to your window to ask for your info, and it will make you seem less sketchy or nervous when you're gathering your stuff for them, which will make you seem less like you have anything to be worried about (you don't).

Keep Your Front Seat Clean

Cluttered front seats often give cause for officers to want to take a better look inside your vehicle, since there's no telling what you might find in the piles of junk you'll see in some cars.

Keeping your front seat clean gives the impression that you're organized and have nothing to hide (you don't if you've only got legal cannabis on you), which can make the entire process a lot easier on yourself.

The cleanest way to keep your front area is to keep your cannabis products out of it completely, so you'll never have an issue.

Order weed delivery in Mississauga for cannabis products instead, and then you theoretically won't even need to have them in the car, unless you're bringing a single dosage somewhere with you.

Always Carry Cannabis in Its Purchased Packaging

This is an extremely important rule that many people neglect to follow, because they don't realize that you need the legal packaging for your cannabis products, in order for it to be considered a legal product.

Things like edibles and pre-rolled joints may not have any kind of markings on them once they're outside of their original packaging. If you don't keep them stored in those packages, the officer that pulled you over won't be able to verify that they are legal products (purchased through a licensed cannabis store), and they may assume it's a black-market product.

Just be sure that you bring your packaging with you, so if you are pulled over and questioned about the legitimacy of your cannabis products, the officer can see that you've purchased them legally and have done nothing wrong.

Breathe

Remember to take a few long breaths to calm yourself down before the officer comes up to talk to you at your window.

No one likes getting pulled over. There's nothing to be ashamed about, if you haven't done anything wrong. Whether the officer pulled you over because you were going a little fast, or because your tail light is out, you shouldn't let yourself start to panic.

Most officers are just regular people like you and I, and many of them will appreciate you being candid and respectful with them, as long as you're upfront and honest about the situation.

Just remember: the truth is always the best option. If they ask you whether you have any cannabis products in the vehicle, tell them the truth. Otherwise, it will look poorly on you if they discover that you were lying about having cannabis products with you.

Navigating Your Conversation with the Officer

Now that you're calm, collected, and ready to meet with the officer that pulled you over, let's talk about some things that you can do during your conversation to encourage a positive, respectful outcome for everyone involved.

Be Polite

No one likes getting pulled over, but that's not an excuse to be rude to the officer that's just doing their job.

Not to mention, if you start your conversation aggressively with them (because you're irritated at yourself for getting pulled over), it's just going to make them want to show you less patience. No officer wants to deal with rude members of the public.

Just be patient and respectful in how you talk to the officer, and you'll be starting your interaction on the right foot, even if you don't like the reason that they pulled you over.

Always Cooperate

If the officer asks you for information, like your name, your address, where you're going, or what you have in the vehicle with you, don't hesitate to cooperate and give them the answers they need.

There's nothing wrong with giving them your information. If you have nothing to hide, withholding information is only going to look bad on you – especially if it's information that can easily be found on your driver’s license.

Know the Law

The rules for taking cannabis products in your car are similar to those that are in place for alcohol.

That is to say that the cannabis must be in its original, closed packaging, and it needs to be stored in the trunk alongside the luggage, where the driver/passengers can't access it.

Apart from that, the other obvious rules apply. Don't use cannabis products before/during driving. Don't use them in your vehicle, which could cause it to smell of cannabis.

Know Your Rights

In Canada, police can't search your vehicle or trunk without reasonable grounds, though you are able to give them permission if you feel comfortable with it.

This is a point of major contention for many people, because they feel like their personal space is being invaded, but again, we'd encourage you to cooperate however the officer asks you to. If they'd like to peek in the trunk, where you should be keeping your legal cannabis products in their original packaging, what's the harm?

As long as you follow our other tips, you'll have nothing to worry about. And don't forget - police officers are here to help us, and they're just doing their jobs to protect us all on the roads. Work with them, instead of against them, and you'll be back on the road before you know it.
