A preliminary hearing began Thursday for three people arrested in a high-profile police raid at a Saskatoon medical marijuana dispensary last year.
The dispensary’s owner Mark Hauk, alongside the two others, appeared in Saskatoon Provincial Court for the hearing as police officers involved in the raid were questioned on the witness stand.
Hauk’s defence lawyer said he plans on bringing forward a constitutional challenge of Canada’s medical marijuana laws, if a trial is ordered.
The medical marijuana dispensary, known as The Saskatchewan Compassion Club, was raided Oct. 29 last year.
Several charges initially laid against the accused were dropped in January. The charges related to derivatives like cannabis oil.
