$2,000 tickets handed out in Wainfleet for growing pot without a licence
Wainfleet is cracking down on illegal marijuana grow operations.
Mayor Kevin Gibson tells CKTB by-law officers in the township continue to hand out tickets to operators who are growing without a proper licence.
Gibson says in the last week two $2,000 tickets have been issued.
He says the issue is that operators are taking over green homes which used to grow vegetables, and then growing marijuana without a permit.
Gibson says residents are complaining about the smell, saying the value on their homes is plummeting.
He says while he supports the importance medical marijuana and CBD oil, it's important residents are receiving the proper permits to grow.
