Written by

ORONO - Police broke up an illegal medical marijuana business in Orono.

It happened last week after members of the Orono Police Department and the Maine State Police executed a search warrant on the business.


Orono police said that during the investigation, they seized 10 pounds of marijuana along with several hundred potentially fake medical marijuana card applications.


Hundreds of marijuana edibles, dabs and THC vape cartridges were also seized.


Police said that employees of the business are cooperating with the department and charges are expected.


The town of Orono still has a moratorium in effect banning all medical and recreational marijuana businesses.
