Hamilton: East End Pot Dispensary Busted by Police

Article by Molly Hayes, Hamilton Spectator

A medical marijuana dispensary owner has been charged following a police raid of the business Tuesday.

Vice and Drug officers – armed with a search warrant – arrived at the Royal Farmacy on Main Street East around 1 p.m. Tuesday, where they seized $20,000 worth of marijuana and marijuana products including edibles.

Owner Shane Hansen wasn’t in at the time, but he got a call from his wife and came down right away.

“They left all my other staff alone, which was good. I came down, they didn’t handcuff me. Honestly the cops get a really get bad rap, but they were as respectful and cordial and polite as they could be,” he said.

But the bust – and the resulting criminal charges – is frustrating to him, because he says they are providing medicine to ill people.

“I don’t serve anybody underage. I don’t serve anybody without a license. The odd time, if people come in… and they can justify to me that they’re in need, I’ll give them a very temporary compassion card and send them for their licensing and whatnot,” he says.
