Saint John police have returned the keys to the owners of six medicinal marijuana dispensaries raided on Tuesday.
It’s unclear if or when the businesses will reopen.
Twelve people — owners and employees — were arrested and are facing charges of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking because police say they they are unlicensed to sell.
Details about the size and value of the seizures have not yet been released.
Officers are still “weighing and itemizing,” and compiling lists to file with the courts, Saint John Police Force Sgt. Charles Breen told CBC News.
It could be another couple of days before he has a final tally, he said.
Police did not issue any warnings about reopening when the keys were returned, according to Breen.
