Three of the seven pot shops that were closed by police in raids earlier this month have reopened.
The WeeMedical Dispensary on St. Laurent Avenue was back in business Tuesday, after its sister Green Tree stores on Preston Street and Montreal Road opened on the weekend.
The stores are low on stock, carrying only a few jars of dried weed. All of their cannabis products were seized by police during the raids on Nov. 4.
The seven raided dispensaries were all operated by a B.C.-based outfit. The other four remain closed, including one on Bank and Hunt Club that was evicted by the landlord after the clerk sold pot from a hole carved into a boarded-up storefront.
Both Green Tree stores were selling weed to customers over the age of 19 on Monday who filled out a form listing their name, address, doctor’s name and “medical conditions.” The form includes a waiver that customers use the products at their own risk and Green Tree is not liable for damages.
