Toronto Police have arrested two men and seized over 17 kg of marijuana during a raid.
Police executed a search warrant at the Georgia Peach Dispensary around 6:38 p.m. Tuesday night. They confiscated large quantities of both marijuana and “marijuana-derived products,” according to a media release.
The two men, who were arrested during the raid, jointly face 14 charges.
Toronto Police said it seized: 1.4 kg of shatter, 6.9 kg of loose marijuana, more than 200 grams of pre-rolled marijuana cigarettes, 1 kg of marijuana-derived products, 123 grams of hashish, and more than 7 kg of edibles. In addition, police also say they confiscated $4,421.
The two men charged
Vincent Kirkham, 49, of Mount Hope, and Ryan Cummings, 24, of Toronto, are both charged. Three counts each of possession of a Schedule II substance for the purpose of trafficking, and of possession of a Schedule II substance. They are charged with one count each of possession of proceeds of property obtained by a crime.
Back in April Hamilton police announced they arrested the owner of the Georgia Peach location in Hamilton on George Street.
They are both scheduled to appear at Old City Hall court on Feb. 13.
In December, Justice Canada warned and reminded Canadians that possessing marijuana is still illegal until its legalization in the summer of 2018.
