Hamilton marijuana dispensary raided by Toronto police

"They're in good spirits. but they're in custody, hopeful that we can have a productive bail hearing tomorrow".

Police have arrested five people and executed 11 search warrants as part of an investigation targeting marijuana dispensaries.

Neither Lloyd nor Toronto police could confirm what, if any, charges the Emerys are facing.

Vancouver police are now raiding the Hastings Street headquarters of Cannabis Culture cafe, while the owners of marijuana dispensary chain - Marc and Jodie Emery - are in custody in Toronto.

They are set to appear in court today.

The couple now operate 20 locations of the Cannabis Culture marijuana dispensary chain, with five locations in Toronto.

Jodie Emery mouthed the words "I love you" to her husband during the couple's brief Thursday court appearance and flashed a peace sign to supporters in the room before being admonished by the justice of the peace.

Security video from inside a downtown Toronto Cannabis Culture that was posted to the company's Facebook page shows police officers inside the store.

A spokesperson for the hospital said Abd El Aty was likely to lose more weight in the coming months. Lakdawala's team has revealed that Eman is now on oral fluids and is accepting them well.

"Our history of enforcing the law against illegal cannabis dispensaries is well established", Pugash said.

There are about 20 Cannabis Culture shops across the country in B.C., Ontario and Quebec, although Emery has said it's hard to keep count because the stores frequently open and close due to police raids.

The turmoil has occurred as the federal government continues to mull changes to marijuana laws.

In Vancouver, another lawyer for the Emerys said "several cannabis activists" were arrested Thursday, in addition to his clients.

Police forces across the country have been raiding pot shops in recent months and charging owners with trafficking-related offences.

Marc and Jodie Emery, prominent pro-marijuana activists, were reportedly arrested at Pearson International Airport Wednesday evening.

The 32-year-old recently appeared as a guest on AM980's The Pulse with Devon Peacock after London Police raided five dispensaries in the city last Thursday.

Victoria-based cannabis lawyer Kirk Tousaw, who has known the Emerys for several years called the arrests a "national disgrace".
