Drug bust

Hashish smugglers Vancouver

July 6th, 1973 — The woman is one of thirteen people charged with smuggling a million dollars of hashish into Canada and was photographed as she stepped from an airplane at the Vancouver Airport before being escorted into a paddy wagon. It’s not much of a picture except that if this happened today would there be the same courtesy offered a drug suspect and would the RCMP officers be there without full body armour and automatic weapons at the ready? I don’t think so. So much has changed in the last 40 years.
