The owner of a marijuana dispensary in downtown Halifax that was raided during the last week of 2016, is hoping that the charges against her and three of her employees will be dismissed once marijuana is legalised later this year, according to a story published by CBC News.

According to the article, Auntie’s Health and Wellness on Barrington St. in Halifax, which is operated by Shirley Martineau, was selling marijuana products to anyone over the age of 19, regardless of whether they had a permit to purchase it or not.

In addition to the raid by police, a municipal representative was also quoted indicating that a business permit for the store had been denied because the business was illegal and contrary to municipal bylaws.
