    The RCMP needs to go after some real criminals and not waste the public's money on this foolishness.

    Who does the RCMP think they're fooling? I know commodities are more expensive in Labrador, but even using high estimates on per-gram sales that value isn't over $4000.

    I still see that the RCMP in Labrador still think we are living in the 70s. They should be looking for the ones cooking crack to sell to our youth... and molesting children.

    12 grand for just over a half pound? Absoutely rediclious, police put this huge number on a bit of weed to make it sound like productivity. Reality check, even sold at 5$ per joint (high end of average), thats less then 5000$. Its weed. I cant recall last weed induced crime spree happened, or an overdose. Stuff like this makes me ashamed to call myself canadian.
