Cannabis Culture pot shop back in business one day after police raid

The Cannabis Culture marijuana dispensary on Bank Street that was raided by police on Thursday reopened Friday morning.

The Bank Street shop near James Street was back in business by 10:30 a.m.

The Cannabis Culture franchise first opened two weeks ago.

Police arrested five men at the shop Thursday morning and charged each of them with five counts of possessing a Schedule II substance for the purpose of trafficking (marijuana, THC oil, THC shatter, hashish and CBD oil) and one count of possessing the proceeds of crime under $5,000.

The Ottawa raid was conducted at the same time as a project co-ordinated by Toronto police called Operation Gator that targeted Cannabis Culture outlets in Toronto, Hamilton and Vancouver. Police executed 11 search warrants on seven Cannabis Culture outlets as well as private homes as part of that project.

A spokesperson for Cannabis Culture said Thursday night that the raided shops would reopen as soon as possible.

In Ottawa, customers were heading back into the shop by 10:30 a.m.

The Vancouver Cannabis Culture HQ that was raided Thursday was back open by the end of the day.
