In an email to 900 CHML, Hamilton Police Const. Jerome Stewart says police did not execute search warrants at those locations, so they must have closed on their own.

“With respect to other dispensaries, we are aware of other closures,” he said. “However, this is a fluid situation and some have reopened (sometimes temporarily) at another address. We will continue to monitor the situation and enforce the Cannabis Act.”
