Police Raid Marijuana Dispensary in Howie Centre, CB

Cape Breton Regional Police raided a marijuana dispensary in Howie Centre on Friday. The search warrant was executed on Nova Budds on Kings Road. While marijuana is on track to become legal in Canada, ┬áthe Cape Breton Regional Police say Nova Budds was operating illegally, was not authorized to dispense or sell marijuana – and its products were unregulated and potentially unsafe. Three men were arrested as a result of the search. A 34-year-old man from Port Hawkesbury has been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking. The other two men arrested have been released without charges.
