A manager at a medical marijuana dispensary in Quebec City was arrested Tuesday morning, after police raided the business and shut it down.

Police investigators arrived in unmarked vans just after 10 a.m and executed a search warrant for Le Cannoisseur on St-Jean Street in downtown Quebec City.

Police said investigators were going to spend several hours cataloguing the contents of the shop, which include derived marijuana products.

”Marijuana is not legal in Canada,” said David Poitras, spokesperson for Quebec City police.

The person who was arrested was released with a promise to appear in court at a later date. Police said Crown prosecutors have yet to decide on charges.

CBC was not able to speak with the owners of Le Cannoisseur, but in a message posted to the dispensary’s Facebook page, they wrote Le Cannoisseur “wants to reassure its faithful members.”

The company said it plans to reopen the dispensary as soon as possible and will continue promoting safe access to medical cannabis.

It also criticized police for ”stifling a business’s efforts to offer a medicinal alternative, in conformity with the Supreme Court of Canada.”

Le Cannoisseur opened its doors on St-Jean Street in downtown Quebec City during the summer.

Poitras said this is the third such business that’s attempted to operate in Quebec City — and the third to be shut down by police.
