Provincial authorities have seized cannabis from an apparently unlicensed dispensary in Vernon that touts itself as having “the best weed” in the city.
Two bright orange signs have been placed on the front door and window of Ocean Sprouts Organic Herb stating that “cannabis has been seized by the Community Safety Unit from this location under the Cannabis Control and Licensing Act.”
The public notice of seizure was posted August 27.
According to the provincial government, as of Wednesday, there were just two licensed cannabis retailers in Vernon.
The public notice of seizure also stated that “it is an offence under section 107(2) of the Cannabis Control and Licensing Act to remove, alter, destroy or deface this notice.”
The notice will stay in place until Sept. 26. The store is located at 3106 30th Avenue.
The Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General told Global News in an email that “the Ministry is unable to comment on any complaints or any enforcement actions that the Community Safety Unit (CSU) will or will not undertake in response to specific cases or situations.”
