The owner of Halifax’s first medical marijuana lounge stayed true to his word and reopened part of his store Tuesday morning, despite being shut down in a police raid and charged with trafficking marijuana.
Christopher Enns — who owns Farm Assists — and his fiancée Sherri Reeve were charged with drug trafficking, possession for the purpose of trafficking, breach of an undertaking, proceeds of crime and production of a controlled substance after the lounge was raided last week.
Enns was back at the Gottingen Street shop and the doors reopened at about 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
“This is my community and I’m not willing to watch it die and just shrivel away,” he told CBC News.
“I’m going to protect my child and make sure it’s here tomorrow.”
Enns said he will continue to sell smoking related products and is open for patients to come in and vaporize their own marijuana. For now, he said he is not selling marijuana from the dispensary section of the store.
