Six days after police executed coordinated search warrants on marijuana dispensaries across Toronto and Vancouver and arrested 80 people, officers raided a Canna Clinic dispensary for the second time and charged eight more employees.
Toronto police raided the Canna Clinic dispensary, located at 213 Ossington Ave., Wednesday and seized, 908.12 grams of marijuana oil, 73.52 grams of shatter, 42.7 grams of hash and $4,941 in Canadian currency.
Petro Merkulov, 21, Pabo Ogunlesi, 22, Grad Murray, 29, Kavan Benthien, 28, Eric On, 23, Ruth-Lande Henry, 21, Joshua Hakimi, 23, Katherine Klippenstein, 27, all of Toronto, were arrested and charged with marijuana possession and drug trafficking charges. They were scheduled to appear in a Toronto court Thursday.
“It’s about enforcing the law,” Toronto police spokesman Mark Pugash told Global News Wednesday. “If people are going to persist in doing what we believe to be is against the law then we’ll continue to enforce the law until that law changes.”
