The public may be used to seeing ice cream carts or beer carts at events on hot summer days, but not carts selling illicit substances.

Victoria Police say they arrested a man pedalling a marijuana cart that was decorated with the name "420 Delivery" in large type on the sides. The number 420 is a widely used code term for marijuana use.

Officers noticed the man pedalling through the city's downtown core last week.
