CAN: Operators of Chelmsford cannabis grow operation broke Cannabis Act

Four southern Ontario residents involved in a medical marijuana grow operation in Chelmsford who ran afoul of the rules governing the growing of their plants have pleaded to the same charge under the Cannabis Act.

Jin Wang, 36, Jun Guo, 35, Hui Gao, 34, and Yanjing Dai, 42, all appearing via Zoom link from the office of their lawyer James Jordan, pleaded guilty through a Mandarin interpreter to illegally cultivating cannabis from a seed or plant material contrary to Section 12 of the Act.

Greater Sudbury Police charged the four, who all had medical marijuana grow licenses, on October 6, 2021. All four received one-year conditional discharges. Conditions of the discharges are that all four are to remain away from Greater Sudbury and that they are not to possess or consume illegal drugs.

All four, incidentally, still possess medical marijuana grow licences.

“Under the circumstances, having heard the facts related to this offense and taking into account that all of the individuals before the court do not have a criminal record, I will follow the joint (sentencing) submission presented to me by both the Crown and defense,” said Justice Pierre Bradley.
