Police raided another Cannabis Culture marijuana dispensary location yesterday – at 365 King Street West in Toronto – shuttering the location and arresting four staff members. The location opened for business again this morning.
This is the fourth raid of Cannabis Culture locations in Ontario since police began a crack-down on cannabis dispensaries, known as Project Claudia.
Two other CC locations in Toronto were raided in June and August and reopened immediately. CC’s Peterborough location was raided in September and remains closed.
Four staff members at the King Street location were detained by police at the location for over an hour then arrested and taken away by authorities in a paddy wagon.
Police seized stock and store computers and even personal computers of staff members.
All four staff members were released this morning and required to sign forms promising they would not work at Cannabis Culture again and are facing charges.
