Toronto police remind public not to call 911 about cannabis with funny ad series

Apparently people need a reminder that it's legal now

Even though weed is now legal in Canada, the Toronto Police are still getting tons of calls about cannabis. As a result, they just released a series of posters to remind the public to think again about calling 911 over simple marijuana related issues.

The campaign is called “Do Not Call 9-1-1,” and it is a plea to prevent calls that waste time since yesterday’s legalization.

“Going forward it is important for everyone to take the time to educate themselves on legalization,” Police Chief Mark Saunders said in a statement.

Using comedic PSA graphics, the Toronto Police are urging people to only call about cannabis related issues if they require emergency services, which does not include seeing an adult smoke a joint in public, a neighbour’s pot plants, or smelling weed coming from your neighbour’s apartment.

Take a look at the posters below.
