Charged Owner to Reopen Saskatoon Marijuana Dispensary Today

Mark Hauk, the owner of an unlicensed medical marijuana dispensary in Saskatoon, says he’ll reopen his dispensary today, after spending Thursday night in jail and Friday morning in front of a judge to face drug trafficking charges related to his business.

“I don’t have a condition that I can’t be at the store,” Hauk said at a protest staged in front of the Saskatoon police headquarters on Saturday afternoon.

He was released on $1,000 bail on Friday morning after appearing before a judge at Provincial Court.

“To be there and do advocacy work, it’s not a breach of conditions, it’s not against the law. And it’s work that needs to be done,” he said, noting he’ll be providing “advice to patients in any way that they need it.”
