After Cannabis Culture cried uncle on Tuesday after continued arrests by the Brantford police street-crime unit, officers raided another dispensary Thursday and seized more than $24,000 worth of marijuana-related drugs.
At noon on Thursday, the street-crime unit attended a different Colborne Street business, arresting two people and seizing a supply of pot, hash, resin and pills, as well as more than $2,400 in cash.
Brantford police confirmed the arrests on Thursday were not at Cannabis Culture, but at a business on the 300 block of Colborne Street East, which stretches from Clarence Street to Peel Street.
Pot raids have been in the headlines the past two weeks after B.C. marijuana activist Marc Emery opened Cannabis Culture on Colborne Street in West Brant. The dispensary had been openly selling pot to anyone over 19 years old —but it didn’t last long.
