Drug Arrests: C18-6900   
Over the last several months, officers from the Marihuana Grow Operation Unit (MGOU) have been conducting an investigation into the activities of 2 illegal marihuana dispensaries.
   
The dispensaries, known as the Winnipeg Compassion Club on McPhillips St. and the Winnipeg Compassion Club South on Pembina Hwy. Both locations were openly selling marihuana.
   
It should be noted that marihuana seized in criminal investigations is never medical grade and is often found to contain contaminants which can pose significant health risks. In this investigation officers seized a number of items which would be particularly tempting to young children who could be at significant medical risk.
   
On January 8, 2018, MGOU, assisted by Community Support Units from Divisions 12, 13, and 14 obtained search warrants for both locations. Approximately $25,000 worth of marihuana, $20,000 of marihuana in alternate forms and $6,000 in cash were seized.
   
Three males, 45, 28, and 27, were arrested and charged with numerous CDSA offences as well Possession of Proceeds of Crime.
 
All 3 were released with court-ordered appearances.
