MACROS was raided by police earlier this week.
“Alberta’s Green Team has charged three people and seized 200 cannabis plants after a month-long investigation into an Edmonton cannabis farm.
The investigation began when police realized Mobile Access Compassionate Resources Organization Society, or MACROS, was selling non-LP cannabis. Last Wednesday, police seized a large amount of cannabis-infused baked goods, candies, oils and dried buds during a search warrant at the shop. They also followed the supply chain and searched the home in Strathcona County where they found 200 cannabis plants and an extraction lab to make hash oil.
