A Richmond wellness centre has been raided for the second time this year by RCMP searching for marijuana products.
Police said Friday that officers executed a search warrant at 3 p.m. Wednesday at the WeeMedical Wellness Centre at 8050 Anderson Road.
The storefront had been selling marijuana-based products openly to the public and was operating without a business licence, RCMP alleged.
Police said the search yielded marijuana and marijuana-based products including baked goods, confectionaries and other edible products. Many of the items were found concealed in an ATM machine, police said.
“This marks the second time in recent months that the Richmond RCMP has executed a search warrant at this location,” said St. Sgt. Wayne Flewelling in a statement. “As the law stands today, selling marijuana in the manner that it was being sold at WeeMedical is illegal. The Richmond RCMP will continue to address marijuana dispensaries in our community whether it be through prevention, awareness, and education.”
