Bonify, the Winnipeg cannabis producer caught selling illegal marijuana in the legal market, isn’t being investigated by the RCMP, but the company’s problems are far from over.

An executive terminated in the wake of the scandal is suing Bonify and its acting CEO, and Bonify’s federal licence to sell cannabis remains suspended.

In a statement, the Manitoba RCMP said its “review of information has been concluded and the RCMP will not be investigating.” The force’s findings about Bonify have been shared with the Manitoba government, the statement added.

A spokesperson for Manitoba Justice Minister Cliff Cullen confirmed that Manitoba Justice has received information about Bonify from the RCMP after requesting the review.

“The letter contains information that requires further review by the province,” wrote the spokesperson. “As such, we cannot provide further comment at this time.”

In December, Bonify hired cannabis consultant George Robinson and his firm RavenQuest BioMed Inc. to launch an internal investigation into what went wrong at the company. Robinson also took over as the company’s acting CEO.

In February, Robinson said the probe had learned how Bonify purchased 200 kilograms of illicit marijuana, but not where it came from. At the time, Robinson said the possibility of a criminal investigation prevented him from sharing more details.
