Saskatchewan Compassion Club Trio Headed to Trial

Three people charged in a bust of a medical marijuana dispensary have been committed to trial.

A preliminary hearing for Mark Hauk, Jeff Lundstrom and Jaime Michelle Hagel wrapped up in Saskatoon Provincial court on Thursday. The three have been charged with trafficking marijuana and cannabis resin and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

Police raided the Saskatchewan Compassion Club in October of 2015. Marijuana was seized from the club, which eventually closed down, although it still has a presence online.

The club, which opened up in August of 2015, was designed to help people gain access to medical marijuana more easily.
