The growers of medical marijuana at the old Boomers bar on Kenilworth Avenue North will not be going quietly.
The operation drew the ire of neighbours after the pungent smell of pot permeated the neighbourhood.
The city issued a zoning violation notice with an order to cease operations.
The group that owns the building disagrees with the by-law violations, but it doesn’t want to try and fight city hall so it’s ordered the tenants to vacate.
Antonio Sergi, who holds the federal medical marijuana licence, intends to fight an eviction order in court.
In his affidavit, Sergi says he can’t simply move the operation because the licence is specific to the Kenilworth location.
The eviction issue will be heard in Hamilton court on July 7.
