OHSWEKEN — On the same day Georgia Peach announced it had opened a new illegal cannabis dispensary chain in Six Nations, police raided the Ohsweken property, seizing marijuana, suspected cocaine and cash.

A 51-year-old Six Nations man and a 53-year-old Burlington man were arrested at the 1715 3rd Line Rd. address, Six Nations Police Service said.

Both were charged with possession of illicit cannabis, distribution of illicit cannabis, and possession for the purpose of distribution contrary to the Cannabis Act.

Both men were released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.

Six Nations police searched the property around 5 p.m. Thursday, hours after Georgia Peach announced on Twitter it had opened.

Later that afternoon, Georgia Peach deleted the tweet, and Six Nations media reported that police and citizens had blocked access to the road near the dispensary.

Last week, the Provincial Joint Forces Cannabis Enforcement Team, which includes three Hamilton officers, raided all four of Georgia Peach’s then Hamilton dispensaries on George Street, Dundurn Street South and two on Upper James.

Twenty-five employees were charged and Hamilton police seized the properties, barring the doors, changing the locks and installing an alarm system under new powers granted by the Ontario Cannabis Act.

Police seized 250 pounds of processed cannabis, 100 pounds of resin and $50,000 in cash from the four Hamilton stores.

A day after that raid, Georgia Peach announced it was opening a new location at 76 George St., but that was short lived, and the operators announced days later they were closing.
