Two employees of a Markham convenience store are facing charges after allegedly selling illegal cannabis products and edibles to underaged customers.
According to York Region police, the edible products appeared to look like candy and were being sold to youths well below the legal age of 19 years old at Angus Glen Convenience on Kennedy Road, south of Major Mackenzie Drive East.
Police seized a large quantity of cannabis edibles, disposable cannabis vape pens and cannabis seeds. The street value of the items seized is approximately $10,000.
An investigation started in January after a concerned citizen filed a complaint with police that the store was selling vape products and products containing cannabis to teens under the age of 19.
The products look similar to candy products that are made for and marketed to children. Many of the products were not adequately labelled and instructions regarding dosage were unclear.
