In February 2017, Waterloo Regional Police initiated an investigation regarding the illegal sale of cannabis marihuana and cannabis products from marihuana dispensaries within Waterloo Region. At that time, the dispensaries investigated were given multiple warnings to cease and desist their operation since the sale of cannabis marihuana is considered illegal, unless by a dispensary licensed by Heath Canada and in accordance with the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulation (MMPR). On May 11, 2017 Waterloo Regional Police officers conducted a search warrant at the KW Dispensary located at 1421 Victoria Street North, in Kitchener. As a result, two Kitchener males face possession for the purpose of trafficking charges. The investigation continues to locate two other Kitchener males as well. Property seized from the location includes cannabis marihuana, cannabis products such as edible treats and currency. Waterloo Regional Police want to remind the public that the sale of cannabis marihuana, unless by a business licensed by Health Canada and in accordance with the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulation (MMPR) is considered against the law. Police encourage the public to report the unlawful sale of any controlled substance by calling 519-653-7700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
