Two people are facing drug charges after the latest Ottawa police raid on a local marijuana dispensary, CannaBotanix Dispensary.
On Jan. 6, officers with the Ottawa Police Service’s street crime unit carried out a search warrant at 646 Somerset St. W. in the city’s Chinatown neighbourhood, the force said in a release Monday.
Police seized both marijuana and pills, edibles and “gummies” containing THC or tetrahydrocannabinol — the main psychoactive ingredient in the drug.
They also seized cell phones and an undisclosed amount of cash.
A man and a woman were arrested without incident, police said.
They both face multiple drug possession and trafficking charges, as well as a single count each of possessing the proceeds of crime.
