After a multiple month investigation by Halifax RCMP, two adults have been arrested after police seized various forms of cannabis from a storefront on Sackville Drive.

Officers say they were able to obtain a large quantity of cannabis, cannabis oils, injectables, and edible forms of cannabis, including, cookies, rice crisps, hot chocolate, gummies, and peanut butter balls.

A man and woman, both from Halifax are now facing charges under the Province's Cannabis Control Act for operating an illegal cannabis storefront.

Police say in a release that it is illegal to sell cannabis, operate an establishment that sells cannabis or purchase cannabis other than from an authorized cannabis seller.

Fines can range from $10,000 to $25,000 for this type of offence.

The two adults will appear in provincial court in June.
