Disciplinary hearing for Toronto cops who allegedly ate marijuana-infused chocolate

TORONTO — New details have emerged in the case of two Toronto police officers who allegedly consumed marijuana, became distressed and called 911.

Police tribunal documents allege Const. Jamie Young and Const. Vittorio Dominelli ate a cannabis-infused chocolate bar seized during a raid at a pot shop in Toronto on Jan. 27.

The documents allege the pair were later surveilling a restaurant when they became distressed and called 911.

Both officers had to be taken to the hospital.

Young faces four misconduct charges and Dominelli faces six misconduct charges, while both face criminal charges, including attempt to obstruct justice and breach of trust.

The documents say criminal charges laid against seven people at the pot shop had to be thrown out because of the officers’ alleged misconduct.
