Police in the Halifax region have raided another marijuana dispensary, and are now apologizing for how they first reported the situation — which included some colourful language.

According to a strongly-worded statement released early Wednesday morning, Halifax RCMP say they searched Timberleaf Alternative Medical Society at 1920 St. Margarets Bay Rd. on Monday around 9 a.m.

Police said the store was “using a marketing ploy” and looking to attract customers “under the false statement that they only sell to people with medical prescriptions.”

“That is simply a lie and they will sell to anybody,” the first RCMP statement read. “The only legal seller of cannabis in Nova Scotia is Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC) or a Health Canada approved online distributor.”

During the raid, police say they seized more than $60,000 in cannabis and cannabis-related products, some of which they allege was marketed towards kids. Police released a photo of a Lego-shaped block that they say was one of the items being sold. They say the blocks had THC levels above 500 mg., which “could be a fatal dose for a child.”
