Uptown Saint John pot dispensary reopens after police raid

(CBC) King Canna Medicinals, one of the six marijuana dispensaries raided by the Saint John Police Force last week, has reopened its doors. When asked for comment, Sgt. Charles Breen said he would talk to the force's street crime unit and await a response. Last week, 12 people were arrested in the raids and charged with possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking. All 12 are either owners or employees of the cannabis shops. After the raids, Wayne Long, the Saint John-Rothesay Liberal MP, issued a written statement saying the federal government is working on legislation legalizing cannabis, but "it is important to point out, that until the new legislation comes into force, the current laws remain in effect."
