MONTREAL (CP) - The RCMP seized 200,000 cannabis seeds and arrested seven people who allegedly operated a cyberspace drug ring that sold, imported and exported marijuana seeds on the Internet.

The RCMP said Tuesday it's the first time they've targeted marijuana seeds and their sale on the Internet. The international company, Heaven's Stairway, set up six web sites where cannabis seeds could be ordered online, the RCMP told a news conference.

Sgt. Maj. Andre Potvin said the orders were picked up in Montreal area post office boxes and then processed.

The company processed approximately 30 orders of cannabis seeds a day, averaging $100 each, Potvin said.

"The investigation confirmed that Heaven's Stairway operated in Quebec, Canada, North America, the United Kingdom and elsewhere in the world from at least 1997 to January 31, 2006," Potvin said.

Nine searches were carried out in the last week of January to gather evidence in Montreal and Laval, north of the city.

Potvin said the cannabis seeds were seized along with more than $183,000 US and three one-kilogram gold bricks.

The RCMP said the amount of seeds seized during the searches could have made it possible to operate about 500 cannabis greenhouses of 400 plants each.

Potvin said that would represent 42 million joints sold on the street.
