3 cannabis dispensaries close after police threaten to seize properties

Saint John police gave shops a deadline for stopping sales

The deadline for Saint John cannabis dispensaries to shut down their operations was Thursday, and most seem to have gotten the message.

Giggles Gaming Cafe on Union Street, the Green Room on Rothesay Road and King Canna on Germain Street have all stopped selling THC products.

The businesses got letters from the Saint John Police Force saying the properties they were operating out of were “an instrument of unlawful activity,” because police believe they were selling cannabis illegally.

The letters said the places had two weeks to stop selling cannabis or their properties would be seized using the Civil Forfeiture Act.

Laura Newman, an employee at King Canna, said the store has stopped selling all THC products, and customers are “not pleased.”
