Pot Shops on Preston Street, Montreal Road Reopen After Police Raids

Two of the pot shops raided by police two weeks ago are back in business.

The Green Tree dispensaries on Preston Street and Montreal Road opened on the weekend. Both were sparsely stocked Monday with a few jars of dried weed selling for $10 to $14 a gram. The popular edibles — cannabis cookies, brownies, candy and pop — will be available later this week, said a clerk at one of the stores.

There’s no ATM available yet, a clerk at the Montreal Road dispensary explained to one customer, pointing to the spot where police ripped it out of the floor during the Nov. 4 raids.

The shops are among seven dispensaries closed after Ottawa police drug officers executed search warrants and seized merchandise. Nine employees were arrested.
