A marijuana dispensary was taken down by provincial police on Wednesday afternoon.
The Ontario Provincial Police Central East Drug Unit, assisted by Northumberland OPP, executed a search warrant at South Shore Wellness – Full Service Cannabis Dispensary located at 8987 County Road 45 in Roseneath.
The store selling marijuana to people with proper licenses was opened approximately two months ago and has a steady business.
Just last week owner Tim Tucker said as a result of a story in Northumberland Today his business increased.
Tucker said last week he was getting more seniors coming in and stated “it’s done a good thing.”
When contacted after being released from custody on Wednesday evening, Tucker said “no comment” about what took place earlier in the day.
Last week, Tucker indicated he along with each member of his staff have prescriptions for marijuana use which is the only way the Supreme Court allows “patient to patient transfer of medication.”
