RCMP search medical marijuana dispensaries in Bible Hill

Mounties raided three medical marijuana dispensaries in Bible Hill on Friday afternoon.

Sgt. Duane Cooper says search warrants were executed at Re-Leaf Medical Dispensary and Community Compassion Centre, both on Pictou Road, and at the Maritime Medicinal Centre on Main Street.

Cooper told the Truro Daily News that more information would be released once the investigation is complete.

An unnamed volunteer at the Maritime Medicinal Centre told the newspaper that the RCMP came in to look for illegal contraband, adding that the store only sells medical marijuana to patients with a prescription.

Recreational marijuana will likely be legalized by this time next year, but the Nova Scotia RCMP have said the current laws will be enforced until then.
