City of Victoria seeks to shut down cannabis shop

The city of Victoria is seeking an injunction to shut down a cannabis shop in the 14-hundred block of Douglas Street. Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps says operators of Terp City Lounge are breaking all of the bylaws, including consumption on site: 

" We looked at all of the people who were not following the rules and we said where do we want to start? And this is the one that is the most egregious. And so they've issued an order from the city, a notice that we will be taking them to court to have an injunctions to shut them down."

Helps says it's the first time the city has taken a pot shop to court, but suggests it won't be the last.
