It was found to be contrary to the Canadian federal Cannabis Act, and the arrest and seizure took place after public complaints were made in May.
11 people were charged with unauthorized production of more than 17,200 plants worth $34 million. Interestingly, the majority of the people involved in the arrest are over the age of 50.
Currently, the 10 identified suspects have been released as the court awaits their appearance coming September.
