William Brady wants the RCMP to pay for his pot — again.
The Cape George, Antigonish County, medical marijuana grower says he will be filing an application with the Nova Scotia provincial court that will ask it to order the RCMP to pay him for 103 marijuana plants police seized on Dec. 7, 2012.
If he is successful, it will be the second time the RCMP will have to pay Brady for seizing his plants.
The 2012 seizure, which also included three ounces of marijuana and $1,800 in cash, led to Brady being charged with illegal cultivation and possession for the purpose of trafficking.
Both those charges never went to trial because they were dropped by the Crown, Brady’s lawyer Adam Rodgers said in a recent interview.
“He was operating within the rules of his licence granted by Health Canada,” said Rodgers.
