Mark Tynan and Wendy Fox have been warned. Now they’re waiting for a written notice from police.
Tynan, general manager of Up Wellness, and Fox, owner of Best Buds Society on 33rd Street, have both had visits from police at their marijuana dispensaries in the last few weeks.
“Two weeks ago we started hearing about these visits happening at the last of the remaining shops. They came to us at the end of that day,” said Tynan, adding “the police officer was really nice.”
“They said we would receive an official letter.”
The letter hasn’t come. Tynan said he is trying not to worry about his business being raided or shut down. He has lost a handful of staff since the in-person notice.
He said he’ll comply if the police come back, as he’s not interested in going to jail.
He travelled home to Saskatoon after years living in Colorado and British Columbia and travelling for his music career.
