2 on-duty Toronto officers ate weed edibles seized from raid: Source

BT Toronto | posted Tuesday, Jan 30th, 2018

Two Toronto police officers ate marijuana edibles that were seized during a dispensary raid on Saturday night, a source tells CityNews.

The two officers were not in uniform when they allegedly consumed the weed edibles, but were on duty, the source said.

CityNews has learned one of the officers is Const. Vittorio Dominelli. He and another officer allegedly consumed the marijuana at 13 Division, located near Allen Road and Eglinton Avenue West.

But the buzz was anything but mellow. Instead, the officers began to hallucinate, with one of them eventually putting out a distress call for help. One of the responding officers slipped on ice and had to be treated for a head injury, while both the intoxicated officers were treated at hospital.

Toronto Police Association President Mike McCormack said he was aware of the allegations and police spokesperson Mark Pugash said two officers from 13 Division are being investigated by the Professional Standard’s Unit, but he wouldn’t say what for.
