Winnipeg police find 64 cannabis-impaired drivers in recent crackdown

Winnipeg police say they found 64 impaired drivers in a recent crackdown on drug-influenced driving.

The targeted #DontDriveHigh campaign, which launched in mid-January with the help of Manitoba Public Insurance and MADD Canada, saw a total of 243 traffic stops throughout the city. Those stops, in turn, led to 148 drug-screening tests and 64 drivers — 43 per cent — testing positive for cannabis.
