      MPs and senators have voted to legalize recreational cannabis in Canada.

      But that doesn't mean weed-sniffing police dogs have been taken off the beat at airports across the country.

      Today, Richmond RCMP announced in a news release that police service dog Hooper helped find 23 kilos of pot.

      It led to the arrest of an Ontario man in his 40s at Vancouver International Airport.

      According to the news release, RCMP noticed some "unusual behaviour" as he was about to fly out of YVR.

      “Kudos to police service dog Hooper, his remarkable nose, and his handler from Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Services for their assistance” Cpl. Dennis Hwang said.

      Consider this as a warning to any tourists or locals who might consider smokin' up before catching a plane.
