An illegal cannabis dispensary on Upper Ottawa Street is the latest to be targeted by a provincial police task force.
On Friday officers from the Provincial Joint Forces Cannabis Enforcement Team (PJFCET), which includes Hamilton police officers, executed a warrant at Green Apple, at 1527 Upper Ottawa St., north of Rymal Road East.
Police seized cash, cannabis and cannabis concentrates, Ontario Provincial Police said.
Four employees, all in their 20s from Hamilton, were charged with possessing cannabis for the purpose of selling, under the Cannabis Act, and proceeds of crime under $5,000, under the Criminal Code.
PJFCET is an OPP-led task force created to target illegal cannabis operations.
“My biggest frustration, to be very frank, is Hamilton,” he said at the April 1 news conference in Etobicoke. “Last time I checked, they had 50-some-odd pot stores out there. Who’s doing anything about it?”
