Hemp Growing near Fort Qu’Appelle Mistaken for Marijuana

Fort Qu’Appelle — The Fort Qu’Appelle RCMP detachment recently solved an interesting case of mistaken identity.

On Aug. 9, a member of the detachment responded to a call from the public that plants resembling marijuana were growing in an area southeast of Abernathy.

Cpl. Drew Wagner explained that the officer at the scene wasn’t sure if the plants were cannabis marijuana or hemp; so the RCMP Integrated Organized Crime Unit South was called.

Between 200-300 plants were found in the field, but tests later revealed the plants were hemp and not marijuana.
