A Saint John man is facing charges after public safety officers raided an east side dispensary.

Justice and Public Safety executed a search warrant at the Russell Street business on April 26.

Officers seized cannabis-related products, including:

  • eight kilograms of dried cannabis
  • one kilogram of hashish
  • 319 cannabis distillate cartridges
  • 368 packages of cannabis gummies
  • 77 jars and 323 packs of cannabis shatter
  • 57 cannabis food products (chocolate bars, etc.)
  • 44 cannabis personal care products (bath bombs, body creams, etc.)
  • 506 pre-rolled cannabis joints
  • 98 vape pens containing THC

They also seized 33 flavoured nicotine vape pens, 16 psilocybin (magic mushrooms) food products, electronics, and more than $4,700 in cash.

A 39-year-old man was arrested and later released. He will appear in court at a later date to face charges under the federal Cannabis Act.
