Williams Lake Pot Shop Shuttered
Prince George, B.C. – Williams Lake Mounties have shut down a pot shop that was operating in a building in the first block of Oliver Street.
It was shuttered yesterday after police executed a search warrant.
“At this time, marihuana is regulated as a controlled substance under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act which prohibits the importation, exportation, trafficking, cultivation/production, and possession of it and its derivatives,” says Cpl. Madonna Saunderson, North District media relations officer.
She adds “Williams Lake RCMP investigators gathered evidence of possible offences under the Criminal Code of Canada as well as the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and took actions accordingly.
“The RCMP is guided by the existing laws and legislation. We recognize the current complexities surrounding the potential for future legislative changes, however the RCMP is tasked with enforcing the laws of Canada as they exist today.”
The shut down is the third in this region over the past two months. As 250News previously reported, two were shut down in Prince George in February.
