Cops crackdown on cannabis smoking lounge in Laval

The Relaxx Social Lounge on Cure Labelle Blvd. in Laval has run afoul of Quebec’s Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS), which coordinated a raid with Laval Police after discovering patrons were smoking pot in the establishment.

The lounge is part of a network of medical cannabis clinics that offer a place to smoke cannabis in a closed-off, ventilated room.

Last week, a comedy show was stopped due to the raid.

“They felt there was an infraction being committed,” said Pharmacann & Relaxx Social Lounge CEO Hans Vargas. “This went on for a good four hours.”
