On July 31, two Farm Assists locations were searched by Halifax Regional Police.

Police siezed what they call "significant" amounts of cash as well as cannabis at the Gottingen St. and Porters Lake locations.

Four people were arrested at the time of the dispensary searches.

It was announced today that Christopher Enns, 34, of East Chezzetcook, also turned himself into police custody.

Enns is a longtime cannabis advocate and owner of the Farm Assists dispensaries.

He appeared in Halifax Provincial Court today on charges of:

- Possession of cannabis for the purpose of distributing contrary to Section 9(2) of the Cannabis Act
- Possession of cannabis for the purpose of selling contrary to Section 10(2) of the Cannabis Act  
- Possession for the use in production or distribution of illicit cannabis contrary to Section 13(1) of the Cannabis Act
- Possession of property obtained by crime contrary to 354(1)(a) of the Criminal Code

In Nova Scotia, the only legal place to purchase recreational cannabis is through the NSLC, and the only legal way to access medical cannabis is through Health Canada.
