Two Barrie marijuana dispensaries were raided by police on Tuesday morning.
Members of the Barrie police street crime unit executed warrants at Sunrise Medicinal and Med West on Dunlop Street during the early morning hours.
Investigators say neither location was licensed to produce or distribute marijuana by Health Canada.
Both dispensaries were targeted after police say they received complaints from members of the community.
“These types of ‘store front’ operations pose a potential health risk, as the production of controlled substances are not regulated by Health Canada and/or originate from unknown sources,” a Barrie police release stated.
Investigators did not provide any details on who was arrested and what charges, if any, have been laid.
