Peterborough, Ontario is an average-size city in the Southern part of the province. With a population of 116,570 people, it is the smallest census metropolitan area in all of Canada. It is the 14th biggest city in Ontario and is one of the highest-ranked populations in terms of age, with an average age of 42.8 years old. The majority of the people speak English, and there are other languages but are only in minorities. There are many kinds of drugs that can be found in Peterborough, and the police forces are often trying to stop their trafficking. Marijuana is one of the prominent drugs in Peterborough, as you will see in the following examples. There was an operation that busted a man who dealt drugs, specifically marijuana. The man was charged with marijuana possession and marijuana production. The police found 29 cannabis plants that were growing and 111 grams of marijuana. The total of the seizure was worth 31,220 dollars. There were also firearms involved, as it happens often in this kind of situation. Another bust happened in September 2009 involving a marijuana growing operation. In this bust, the following things were seized: marijuana shake (6.8kg), marijuana (139g), marijuana resin (25g) equipment and ammunitions. The drug seizure alone was worth over six thousand dollars. The man was charged with several counts of possession, the intent of trafficking, etc. However, marijuana is not the only drug that is seen on the Peterborough market. The authorities have been seeing a lot more of the harder drugs. There are such drugs as crystal methamphetamine, crack cocaine, ecstasy, etc., which are alarming the population of Peterborough. Because of their very addictive nature, the officials are concerned that meth and other drugs will become a really big problem in the city.
