Brantford police raided a pot dispensary Tuesday, a day after it opened, and arrested a 35-year-old Stoney Creek man.

Police went to Cannabis Culture on Colborne Street West around 8:30 p.m. and determined that “the business was selling marijuana to persons who did not possess a medical marijuana license,” according to a press release.

They charged the man with possession for the purposes of trafficking.

The federal government has committed to legalizing marijuana, but it hasn’t happened yet.

In Hamilton, local police have said that until it does, they follow the law and charge people who sell marijuana. A Cannabis Culture branch in Hamilton is among an increasing number of marijuana dispensaries around the city.

The owner of Cannabis Culture, Marc Emery, refers to himself as “the Prince of Pot.” The locations offer pot strains that include Pakistani Kush, LSD, White Widow and Brainwreck. The latter, the website says, is “a strong experience that will give you energy but still get you very stoned.”

In Brantford, police closed the business and, as of Wednesday morning, were waiting to get judicial approval to search it.
