Last week in Toronto multiple raids took place, confiscating large amounts of recreational marijuana and edibles. The cannabis shops that were involved were claimed to be selling for recreational use.
This raid resulted in 71 criminal charges, and 90 people were arrested.
Police Chief Mark Saunders said that these shops were a general health concern by not having the needed information in regards to thc content, or where the marijuana and products came from.
There are 18 known dispensaries that are legally working under the health Canada act and will remain to be open for operation.
Mr and Mrs emery are fighting for recreational marijuana use and are fighting for legalization. Jodie posted on social media today about the queen street raid last week. Jodie and her husband mark Emery are protesting and are still providing cannabis for recreational use for users above the age of 19.
Cannabis Culture was one of the shops that was involved in the raid last week. They have decided to continue operating their dispensary and they will not give up on providing recreational users with the medication they need.
I can hardly wait for legalization to take place.! To know that people are getting criminal charges and being arrested over marijuana is outrages. I am very appreciative to those that are speaking up and fighting for the legalization. without people standing there ground and continuing to do the right thing by providing marijuana to the sick and healthy our rights would not be herd.
with legalization just around the corner Mr and Mrs Emery are “refusing to be bullied ” by law enforcement.
