Two people have been charged after York Regional Police investigated a Markham convenience store for allegedly selling cannabis edibles to children.
A police investigation into Angus Glen Convenience began in January after they were tipped off by a local resident that the store was selling cannabis products to a group of children.
Police executed a search warrant at the convenience store on Thursday, during which they found $10,000 worth of cannabis products.
Some of the products reportedly "look similar to candy products that are made for and marketed to children." Police also noted that "[many] of the products were not adequately labelled and instructions regarding dosage were unclear."
"Police are warning parents to ensure children have no access to these harmful products and if appropriate, warn their children these products are not candy," police said in a Tuesday press release.
The owner of the store and one employee have been charged under the Cannabis Act with Possessing Cannabis for the Purpose of Selling. The investigation is ongoing.
