Police have raided an illegal marijuana dispensary in downtown Saskatoon for the third time in three months.

Last week, police raided the Saskatoon Cannabis Clinic and charged four employees under the Cannabis Control Act.

Police said the store continues to sell unregulated cannabis without a license.

Officers seized a number of items from the store.

This is the third time Saskatoon police have laid charges against the store's employees.

Previous charges include possession and distribution of cannabis.

Under the current rules, only stores licensed by the provincial government are allowed to sell sanctioned marijuana. Saskatoon has three legal cannabis stores operating right now.
