The City of Chilliwack is clamping down hard on illegal pot shops, with one marijuana dispensary being raided by police for the second time in two weeks.
WeeMedical Dispensary Society Chilliwack says it reopened in a case of “Civil Disobedience” but Chilliwack RCMP raided the pot shop again yesterday as Mounties executed a search warrant under the Controlled Drug and Substance Act.
In a Facebook post, the pot shop apologizes to members who may have had their purchased goods confiscated while “showing their support and patronage.”
Police say marijuana, cash, and store records were seized.
It’s the second raid this month.
The city says the pot shop is also violating business license and zoning bylaws.
Fines of $1000/day were levied against the society for every day is operated in the city illegally.
The building’s two owners were also fined.
