Pot Not on Menu At Family Eatery

By Hempology | March 12, 2007


Four teens in West Vancouver may want to think again before they choose to do a drug deal in a busy family restaurant. On the table. At suppertime.

The four were arrested Thursday at the Park Royal White Spot when they were easily spotted at a table dividing up marijuana in plain view.

“It wasn’t on the menu,” noted West Vancouver police Sgt. Paul Skelton.

It’s not clear who spotted the three 16-year-olds and 17-year-old doing the deal — it was 6:15 p.m. in the busy restaurant — but someone in the eatery called police.

The investigation was exceptionally brief. The youths were asked to step outside, where they were arrested and searched and relieved of 65 grams of pot.

The incident was “probably not a good judgement call,” said Skelton.

“Research,” he noted dryly, “has shown that marijuana use impairs your judgement.”
