Charges against a Barrie, Ont. real estate broker for operating an illegal marijuana grow-op were dismissed recently when it was revealed that his co-accused has a licence to grow medical marijuana.

Aaron Cadeau, the owner of Flat Fee Realty, was charged last December after police raided several properties and seized more than 200 marijuana plants and hydroponic equipment.

“This has nothing to do with (Cadeau),” his lawyer, Leo Adler, told news website Simcoe.com. “He was just a legitimate businessman who was renting out space to a person who has a proper licence and permit.”

When police raided his home, a loaded shotgun was found under a bed in Cadeau’s home. He still faces a charge of careless storage of a firearm.
