Hamilton police have charged the owner of a medical marijuana dispensary on Barton Street East.
The vice and drug unit used a search warrant to enter The Medicine Cabinet, a dispensary at 1050 Barton St. E. It happened just before 3 p.m. on Feb. 3.
The owner was “selling or giving marijuana or marijuana derivatives to clients,” police say. Officers seized about $20,000 worth of marijuana and marijuana derivative products, including edible THC-based products.
Police also executed a search warrant for the Cloud Nine head shop and lounge at 1048 Barton St. E., but no charges were laid.
This is just the latest move in the city’s attempt to get a handle on marijuana dispensaries.
