Toronto police say 23 people are facing drug-related charges after four marijuana dispensaries were raided in the city on Thursday, but one pot advocate says that won’t stop them.
In a release, police say an alleged value of $289,076 worth of marijuana, hashish and hash oil were seized by authorities as part of the raids. On top of this, $29,538 worth of proceeds were also taken by police.
Four different locations were involved in the raids. Three Canna Clinics — 44 Kensington Ave., 2352 Yonge St. and 793 Dundas St. W. — and a Cannabis Culture at 901 Queen St. W. were targeted by authorities. Police say search warrants were executed as part of a joint effort between the force and Toronto’s municipal licensing and standards.
