GRENFELL, SASKATCHAWAN, CANADA — Law enforcement discovered and shut down a sophisticated marijuana growing enterprise in this small town’s long-closed movie theater (probably the former Windsor). Two people were arrested.

Around 416 marijuana plants and about 4.5 kilograms of harvested marijuana were found in the theater in the town of Grenfell, in the Western Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said they raided the theater on Wednesday after a man was arrested trying to enter Canada from North Dakota with a small amount of what was suspected to be hashish in his car.

Subsequent published stories (such as this one, with a picture) about the raid confirmed that the theater was the former Windsor: View link

That’s an adaptive reuse I’d never thought of!

The Reuters link about the bust appears to be broken, but the one I posted above from the Winnipeg Free Press seems to be working as does this one: View link
