Excerpt: Alan Young, professor at York University’s Osgoode Hall Law School, said police are “setting a standard few can live up to” by calling on dispensary owners to report a crime despite the risk of charges. “When you operate in a grey or black market, you don’t have the same sense of security that other people have, feeling you can call the police to protect you, because you are always worried about repercussions,” Young said. “Right now, knowing the police have very zealously been targeting dispensaries, I can’t imagine anyone wanting to call if they were concerned about facing charges.”
