Kamloops pot grower in court fighting for return of seized items
Pot activist Carl Anderson and about a half-dozen supporters were in a Kamloops courtroom this on Thursday, July 5, seeking compensation and the return of materials after a local medicinal-marijuana grow was apparently raided by police last week.
An application has been filed in Kamloops provincial court on behalf of Kurtis Bischoff.
According to Anderson, Bischoff was operating a legal grow operation, with paperwork from Health Canada, until the raid on Thursday, June 28.
Bischoff, 32, is seeking the return of paperwork and materials seized by police.
Speaking with KTW outside the courtroom, Anderson referred to Bischoff as "one of our growers."
Anderson is also engaged in a court battle for the return of items seized during a police raid last November of his Canadian Safe Cannabis Society marijuana dispensary on Tranquille Road.
He is charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking in relation to the raid, slated to stand trial next May.
Bischoff's application was not heard by a judge yet. Following a brief appearance before a justice of the peace, it was adjourned until later this month.
