Vehicles enter the U.S. at the Peace Arch border crossing.

The driver of a truck bringing a commercial load of marijuana products from Calgary, Alberta to Port Coquitlam, B.C. somehow managed to take a few wrong turns and ended up at the U.S. truck crossing at Pacific Highway. Presumably surprised CBP agents seized the shipment weighing nearly 875 pounds and released the driver and the truck.

A request for information was denied on June 17 due to CBP policy that it "cannot comment regarding incidents that are a matter of pending litigation." However, a follow up inquiry by The Northern Light pointed out that no lawsuit had ever been filed and asked for an update.
