Two men, aged 41 and 44, were arrested and later released. “The matter remains under investigation and charges are being considered,” the release said.

In all, officers seized:

  • 12.2 kilograms of cannabis
  • 1.5 kilograms of hashish
  • 91 disposable vaping pens
  • 130 vape cartridges
  • 255 grams of live resin (a cannabis concentrate)
  • 52 grams of RSO (a cannabis oil product)
  • 200 grams of edibles
  • about $10,400 in cash.

The release noted that Cannabis NB is the only legal retailer of recreational cannabis in New Brunswick and manages retail cannabis sales in the province.

It said illegal dispensaries are not regulated and sometimes sell products that are not tested or approved by Health Canada.
