Crackdown on illegal pot shops in Toronto

Illegal pot shops in Toronto are  high on the radar for the Toronto bylaw enforcement officers as they step up their efforts to get rid of them across the city.

Powered by the new Cannabis Control Act officers have so far closed one location along Eglinton Ave. W. on Monday night before shifting attention to the Finch Ave. W. and Weston Rd. area, where a dispensary dubbed the Green Apple was closed Tuesday.

 “We’re doing a number of these every week and we will continue,” Mark Sraga, the director of investigation services for municipal licensing and standards told the Toronto Star.
