Updated: Two arrested in Bridgewater marijuana dispensary raid

by Charles Mandel

Bridgewater Police Service arrested two people following a raid on the GreenWay Wellness Centre on High Street in Bridgewater on December 20th.

A male and female were arrested, and police seized a large quantity of marijuana along with a number of other derivatives including hash, shatter, THC-infused gummies, chocolate and rice crispy squares, TCH-infused dog treats, and other products.

Derek Childs, a detective with the South Shore Integrated Crime Enforcement Unit, said it was too early to know what the street value of the drugs added up to, noting he was just starting to sort through the seized goods.

Childs said currently there are no legal marijuana dispensaries in Nova Scotia, and that investigating the centre was "something that had been on the agenda" for some time, so police executed the warrant.

The two adults were later released from custody.

Both face multiple charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking marijuana as well as cannabis resin and are scheduled to appear in Bridgewater count on February 26th 2018.

GreenWay opened in the summer on King Street but relocated to High Street following the downtown fire in October.

In a previously published story, LighthouseNOW was told that to shop at the dispensary patients must have prescriptions from their doctors to buy products like marijuana or infused edibles and oils.
