Charges Pending Against Edmonton Marijuana Dispensaries

An Edmonton man awaiting drug charges says a police raid of his south Edmonton store was “a waste of time.”

David Tiefenbach owns The Medi Joint, a cannabis dispensary located on 109 Street, just south of Whyte Avenue.

The store sold cannabis products only to patients with prescriptions from a doctor. The practice won’t be legal until Canada legalizes marijuana, next summer. However, in British Columbia, police don’t crack down on people offering the service.

Edmonton police did step in.

On Dec. 13, officers went to The Medi Joint, shut it down and seized about $100,000 of product, according to Tiefenbach, who said he was surprised at the crackdown.
