RCMP getting paid to snowboard in Alberta....

Canada's War on Pot Just Got Weirder

damn don't he look fabulous going down the slopes?

What a cush ass gig. Also, what an out of touch police service the RCMP are for actually doing this.

The officers, who are in uniform and carrying weapons, are focusing their attention on substance abuse on the chairlifts and gondolas.

“It’s going to deter people from bringing narcotics or have that second look of doing something on the ski hill because they know there is going to be a police presence,” said RCMP Cpl. Jeff Campbell, the detachment commander in Lake Louise. (…)

Two officers will be on patrol Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays as well as holidays including March break and Easter weekend. RCMP hope to expand the program once they have more officers certified.”

Canada's drug policy, firmly looking backwards - not forwards...

Can't wait for the upper shelf generations to just go ahead and move onto the next realm, demography and time are on the pot smoker's side...

I have a feeling I could outrun most cops on a snowboard.

I actually saw a cop on skis at Big White a few years ago. I just missed clipping him when I came flying out of the trees like an asshole. He probably would have been better going after me for that then wasting time bothering pot heads.

I'm not involved with skiing/snowboarding culture, but I would assume that dope smokers would be pretty easy to catch because they'd be caught getting high under a tree on the slopes, instead of going down it?

Most people smoke on the chair lift or dip out of bounds. They should set up a sting for board and ski thieves, I could get behind that.


TRIBE Member
well perhaps these boarding pigs will sniff out some board thieves by accident...

"While the RCMP ski patrol is a volunteer program,"

It's a volunteer job. I don't know why anyone would volunteer to wear that uniform hahahah

Years ago when Pierre Trudeau was the PM, his kids went to camp on the lake where my cottage is. There was an RCMP protection detail that spent the summer sitting on a boat in the middle of the lake suntanning. Always thought that would have been a pretty sweet gig.

I've lost track of the number of times I've gotten on a recently hot boxed gondola in BC. So they aren't wrong in that respect. Still a waste of time though.
