Move over, wine moms.

We've all heard of "wine moms." But this is 2016. And this is Canada. So we have weed moms.

On Tuesday — the day most Canadian kids returned to school — a police officer in Saanich, BC pulled over a woman for allegedly speeding in a school zone.

"The officer approached the car and as the lady rolled down her window, he could smell the overwhelming scent of freshly smoked marijuana," Sgt. Jeremy Leslie told BuzzFeed Canada.

When asked, the woman had no qualms fessing up.

"She said, 'Oh yeah myself and some other moms had a celebratory joint to celebrate the kids being back at school.'"

The woman passed a field sobriety test and there were no kids in the car, so she was sent off with only a ticket for speeding.

Sgt. Leslie, however, would like to remind you not to smoke up and drive.

British Columbia, amirite? 🌳

It's true... Sometimes you just can't make this stuff up #Saanich
