Toronto police have raided a marijuana dispensary on the Danforth, a
little more than a week after its owners were featured in a media
interview that touted their business as "totally illegal."

Chris Goodwin and Erin Goodwin, owners of Good Weeds Lounge, are
charged with two counts possession for the purpose of trafficking,
relating to marijuana and cannabis resin, plus possession of the
proceeds of crime. Erin Goodwin is also charged with simple
possession. The investigation was sparked by "community complaints,"
Const. Caroline de Kloet told Metro. The raid happened Thursday.

On Jan. 12, VICE published an interview in which Chris Goodwin said
Good Weeds is different than other dispensaries that have popped up
because it doesn't require customers to have a medical marijuana license.

The reporter also asks Goodwin if he's afraid of being shut down. "I
have been doing this a long time and I have complete confidence in
what we're doing. I've thought this through endlessly," he said.
