Prominent pro-marijuana activists, Marc and Jodie Emery, were arrested last night at Pearson International Airport. Police have raided the the pair`s Cannabis Culture dispensary shops all over the country in an on going initiative to crack down on illegal dispensaries operating. The Prince and Princess of pot made a brief appearance today in court, and await their bail hearing tomorrow.
The city’s municipal licensing and standards office had this to say according to the Star:
“The City of Toronto has consistently pursued enforcement actions against marijuana stores in the city. These operations are illegal under federal law and also operate in contravention of the City’s zoning by-laws,” said a statement from licensing head Tracey Cook.
“The new court application commenced by the city with respect to a chain of marijuana stores operating in multiple locations across the city continues the city’s efforts to enforce its existing bylaws.”
2017 is showing to be an exciting time of rapid change… Well not that rapid… But exciting none the less. Maybe the grass isn`t greener on the other side.. Or is it?
