Mounties Shut Cannabis Shop in Nanaimo

A Nanaimo pot shop has been shut down after RCMP suspected customers of selling illegal opioids inside the store.

Nanaimo RCMP raided the Limelife Society marijuana dispensary at 119 Nicol St. about 8 p.m. Thursday, acting on information that patrons were trafficking opioids, said Nanaimo RCMP spokesman Const. Gary O’Brien.

Two men were arrested and found to be in possession of eight purple tablets. The tablets will be sent for testing to determine if they contain fentanyl, O’Brien said.

The RCMP said when officers entered the Nicol Street business, 15 clients were inside consuming shatter, a marijuana concentrate, and other products derived from marijuana.
