The city is taking cannabis dispensary Canna Clinic to the Nova Scotia Supreme Court to try and shut it down for good.
According to Global News, Halifax Regional Municipality filed a request with the court on Friday to stop “selling, dispensing or storing cannabis or permitting the sale, dispensing or storage of cannabis” at its storefront on Dresden Row.
An affidavit filed by an HRM compliance officer in support of the municipality’s request shows Halifax has been looking into Canna Clinic since January 2017 when it got a complaint cannabis was being sold at the business.
The officer states it doesn’t have proper commercial business permits and it was notified.
The landlord sent eviction notices in January and March 2017.
Charges were laid against the landlord and Canna Clinic under the municipality’s downtown land use bylaw.
Both companies pleaded guilty in May 2018 and the case is still awaiting sentencing.
HRM says recent inspections show Canna Clinic still sells cannabis from the store.
