This communication is to update you on the ongoing investigation of the illegal dispensary at 1608 Weston Rd, California Cannabis. As many of you have witnessed, the signage for California Cannabis has been reinstalled by the store owner this past week. The Councillor’s office was notified by residents in the area on Tuesday last week at which point they updated both Toronto Police Services, 12 Division and Municipal Licensing & Standards. An officer from Municipal Licensing & Standards confirmed that they had monitored the store over the weekend and customers were not given access into the store. They believe that the sign was reinstalled, but operation has not yet started. That being said, they will continue to monitor the location while they work with Toronto Police Services to obtain another warrant.
The Councillor’s office will continue to work with both Toronto Police Services, 12 Division and officers from Municipal Licensing & Standards to permanently close this dispensary. The WVRA will continue to keep on top of this issue and will advise our members when there is further news regarding it.
We have received the following email from Councillor Nunziata:
“Please join the upcoming rally that has been confirmed with 12 Division for Sunday, April 22nd at 2pm. We invite you to join the Councillor along with officers from 12 Division in front of 1608 Weston Road to protest against the ongoing business at the dispensary.”
The Weston Village Residents Association will be in attendance to support our Councillor and 12 Division. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
