Police in Montreal Friday raided six cannabis shops one day after they opened, following a warning by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that recreational marijuana is not yet legal in Canada.Ten people were arrested in the raids, police said, including veteran pro-cannabis activist Marc Emery.Trudeau, who campaigned last year on a promise to end nearly a century of pot prohibition, warned that the government is still at least one year away from legalizing pot use.Emery on Thursday however went ahead and opened in Montreal six boutiques of the Cannabis Culture franchise chain, which already exist in other cities.Police raided the stores at the end of the day as buyers braved frosty conditions to crowd into the boutiques to buy marijuana.
