The Campbell River RCMP Street Crime unit executed a search warrant on a marijuana dispensary in the 800 block of 13th Ave. at noon today.
The search warrant stemmed from an ongoing investigation led by the street crime unit. Drugs believed to be marijuana were seized, as well paperwork and cash that location, RCMP said. The location is the storefront of WeeMedical Dispensary in Campbell River which opened April 1.
“Campbell River RCMP is committed to ensuring local businesses are abiding by federal and provincial law, and will continue to investigate any businesses believed not to be following these laws,” said Const Sara Clark, Media Relations officer for the Campbell River RCMP.
The investigation is ongoing and at this time no charges have been laid, Clark said.
This is the second dispensary that was raided in a week. Trees Dispensary was raided by the RCMP on April 6. It comes after city council made moves at its Monday, April 11 meeting to make the dispensaries illegal in Campbell River.
