Pot shop in the falls – RCMP visit and arrest one

Note the roof line of Pot Shop

Police say “several pounds” of marijuana bud and edibles were seized Wednesday during a raid on an Okanagan Falls dispensary.

“This investigation confirmed the dispensary was operating without a licence to sell marijuana, and that anyone from the general public could purchase the drug without a medical note,” RCMP Const. James Grandy said in a press release.

He added that Health Canada states there is no legal method of selling the drug at a storefront. It may only be distributed to patients who acquire a medical license and order it through the mail.

“No storefront is legally able to sell marijuana products to the general public. The marijuana seized from this dispensary was openly sold to anyone who walked into the store, regardless if they had a medical use license or not. There are legal methods of obtaining the drug”…. said Grandy
