A Windsor business is being investigated for the illegal sale of marihuana.

Windsor Police say that officers from the Drug Enforcement Unit had been involved in an investigation involving the illegal sale of marihuana at a business located at 490 Wyandotte Street West named Burnies Compassion Club.

As a result of the investigation, on Tuesday June 7th, 2016, officers applied for, and were granted, a CDSA search warrant. The warrant was executed on the business at approximately 2:30pm and a 41-year-old Windsor male was arrested for trafficking marihuana and possession for the purpose of trafficking marihuana.

Officers seized 69 grams of cannabis marihuana, scales, and packaging materials, consistent with the sale of marihuana.

Police are reminding the public that under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR), persons who are medically authorized to possess marihuana can only purchase it from producers licensed by Health Canada. Licensed producers do not operate from storefronts. The only legal way for authorized users to obtain medical marihuana under the MMPR is from a licensed producer through the mail.

A limited number of people are grandfathered under a revoked medical marihuana regulation, and are currently permitted to grow their own marihuana or have a designated person grow it for them. The marihuana is strictly for their own use and cannot be legally sold or transferred to another person.

Any individual without licence who seeks to sell or traffic cannabis is in contravention of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

Police are asking anyone with information in relation to this investigation to call 519-258-6111 or Crime Stoppers at 519-258-8477 (TIPS).
