Weeds Glass and Gifts Pot Store Raided by Vancouver Police

Vancouver police have executed search warrants at the Weeds Glass and Gifts marijuana store at 2916 West 4th Avenue following a month-long investigation.

Police say they started looking into the shop following a number of “events involving young people” including one connected to a 15-year-old teen who was hospitalized after allegedly purchasing edible products from the store.

In Wednesday’s raid, police say they entered the store, searched it for additional evidence and arrested staff who were later released. The store’s customers were also identified during the raid, but then released pending investigation.

The store is owned by Don Briere, one of the province’s largest growers of B.C. bud in the 1990s. He says the police took all of his marijuana inventory.
