Winnipeg’s Medical Pot Dispensary Reopens Despite Risk Of Arrest

CANADA:  The owner of Winnipeg’s medical marijuana dispensary has reopened his shop, despite warnings from police.

Glenn Price, who runs Your Medical Cannibis Headquarters on Main Street, opened his shop at 11 a.m. Tuesday.

A week earlier, Price said police showed up at the store and asked him to stop selling cannabis, citing pressure from Health Canada to crack down on marijuana dispensaries.

Price said he agreed to close the store for several days, but he’s willing to fight the matter in court if police arrest him this time.

Denver Police Warn Trick-Or-Treaters Of Marijuana-Infused Candy

COLORADO:  Denver police have warned parents to beware tricks rolled inside Halloween treats this year: marijuana-infused candy.

The Denver police department posted a YouTube video on Monday that shows how difficult it is to tell ordinary candy apart from knock-off candy that edible marijuana manufacturers buy in bulk and spray with a hibiscus hash oil.

“Once that candy dries, there’s really no way to tell the difference between candy that’s infused and candy that’s not infused,” said Patrick Johnson, proprietor of Urban Dispensary, one of several marijuana retailers that have cropped up across the state since the substance was legalized for recreational use last year. “There’s really no way for a child or a parent or anybody, even an expert in the field, to tell you whether or not a product is infused or not.”

His recommendation? Trash any candy that isn’t sealed in a recognizable, brand-name wrapper.
