It turns out police have already raided at least two Hamilton storefront medical marijuana sellers this year.
The raids raise questions about the fate of all self-styled dispensaries in the city — particularly since newly released draft regulations for medical marijuana now specifically label freelance storefront sellers as illegal.
The owner of a King Street East medical marijuana dispensary, Bright Moments, was the first to publicize an apparent local police raid in July. Luke Williams argued at the time the shop catered to “800 patients who are sick, who have prescriptions, who need help.” He said he didn’t understand why police would crack down in the midst of a federal effort to rewrite marijuana regulations.
The police service did not provide any information about that incident or answer Spectator questions about other possible raids until now, nearly a month later.
