  1. Marijuana is proper spelling. Marihuana is the government’s spelling when referring to medical marijuana, which clearly doesn’t apply here since they were arrested…It’s safe to assume it wasn’t medical. Doesn’t mean it’s an acceptable spelling, unless you’re the government of canada. The dim witted can spell things wrong all they want, doesn’t mean it’s an acceptable spelling

  2. Good on them for keeping the streets a bit safer, but am I the only one that is a bit dismayed at the proof reading of this document? It’s Marijuana… with a “J”….

    • Actually, the “H” spelling IS acceptable, and legitimate. Thank you, however for keeping our grammar in check. 😁 Have a fantastic day!
