Banff RCMP search local business, seize controlled substances
Banff, Alberta – RCMP officers in Banff executed a search warrant and seized controlled substances from a local business after receiving complaints from neighbouring businesses and citizens.
On Jan 10, 2017, Banff RCMP received judicial authorization to search the “Canna Clinic” located in the Bear Street mall in Banff. RCMP seized a substantial amount of marijuana and a marijuana concentrate commonly called “Shatter”. Nine individuals associated with the Canna Clinic were arrested without incident and charges are pending.
RCMP learned that the Canna Clinic was granted a business license in December 2016 to sell paraphernalia until such time that the sale of recreational marijuana became legalized. RCMP were alerted by several concerned citizens that the Canna Clinic was selling marijuana to customers and began an investigation. In consultation with the Federal Crown Prosecutor for the area, Banff RCMP obtained a search warrant which resulted in these arrests and charges.
“The RCMP is committed to enforcement of all laws, including the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.,” said Corporal Curtis Peters. “Currently, possession and trafficking of marijuana remains an offence and the RCMP will continue to enforce the law.”
