Some provinces plan to hire teens for marijuana sting operations

  Some provinces plan to hire teens for marijuana sting operations Four provinces have provided for legal sting operations against marijuana retailers to test whether they're keeping underage customers out of their stores. B.C., Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador all forbid people under 19 from buying or trying to buy cannabis, but carve out an exception for teens hired by an enforcement authority to try and find retailers selling pot to minors. .The programs would be similar to those run for years in several provinces to find retailers who sell tobacco or alcohol to underage customers.

A man and woman are in custody after a liquor store employee was stabbed in a north Edmonton parking lot Thursday night.

Edmonton police were called to a liquor store in the area of 97 Street and 160 Avenue around 9:45 p.m, Staff Sgt. Paul Cherwonka said in an interview with CBC News Friday morning.

The worker was stabbed as he tried to pursue a man who had run off with several stolen several bottles of alcohol from the store.

"He was in pursuit of the male and the female basically ambushed him," Cherwonka said.

Filming a cell phone video

The worker was attempting to film the suspected thief on his cell phone when he was attacked by the female suspect.

"He had a cell phone with him and was filming the male suspect as he was running away. He was in pursuit of him to keep filming him," Cherwonka said.

"As he was following the suspect, the female accomplice crept up behind him," Cherwonka said. "That's when she stabbed him a couple of times."

The worker managed to get back inside the store and call 911, said Cherwonka. He was transported to hospital, but police could not comment on the severity of his injuries.

"He was bleeding all over the place," Cherwonka said. "There was a lot of blood."

The male suspect was arrested at the scene. The woman later turned herself in overnight.

The Edmonton Police Service's robbery unit has taken over the investigation.

Will 31 licensed producers and 1 government store be enough to meet B.C.'s weed needs? .
When marijuana becomes legal later this year, all supply and distribution will happen through the B.C. Liquor Distribution Board. But will it be able to meet the demand for its product? But will it be able to meet the demand for its product?
