Bonify, the popular cannabis producer based in Winnipeg, was recently chopped off from the use of its license for selling and production of marijuana. This move of suspending the license came from Health Canada, which confirmed that the company was actually distributing, possessing, and even selling products that were actually acquired from illegal sources.
Not just that, this company was found selling products that failed to comply with Good Production Practices which are mandatory under government laid Cannabis Act. These Acts have been laid out for protection of public health & safety.
This suspension of license follows the revelations brought forth in the latter half of December which was initially reported by news firms such as The Leaf News and Free Press. The report also stated that Bonify occupied cannabis from suppliers that didn’t hold government regulated license and sent them to Saskatchewan based licensed stores.
Given the incident, three senior executives working for Bonify were fired along with a member of the company’s board, who was suspended and remains unnamed. Health Canada also issued voluntary recall for Bonify’s product while the sales for cannabis at Manitoba had to be suspended by the provincial authorities.
