    A Montrealer who had transformed his triplex in the plant pot will have to pay an invoice salt of a half-million dollars to the tax authorities.

    Vinh Thuy Doan has failed before the judge Alain Breault to cancel the claim of $ 515,000 of the Agence du revenu du Québec (ARQ), representing the portion it must pay to the State in taxes, interest and penalties on their illegal earnings unreported.

    Failure to pay the note, this fifty-year-old green thumbs the risk of losing his triplex on Saint-Hubert street in the hands of the ARQ, in lieu of payment.

    A lot of plants

    In march 2010, the police officers of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) had found 937 marijuana plants that were growing inside of three units of the building, two of which were uninhabited, due to the magnitude of the greenhouse rooms.

    Mr. Doan and his son of 25 years old were arrested and charged with production of cannabis. The son was acquitted when the father has admitted his guilt.

    The 56 year old man has not been reluctant when a judge was sentenced to a very lenient one-year detention to be served in the comfort of his home in 2011. But he made the leap when the tax man is manifested two years later.

    The courts recognize the tax authorities of the country have the right to demand their share of the taxes on the illegal income of drug traffickers.

    Even if this income is irregular, the tax authorities and the police are nevertheless able to make accurate assessments.

    270 pounds of pot

    In the case of Mr. Doan, the ARQ has estimated that the plantations that it was allowed to do 20 crops totalling nearly 270 lbs or 120 kg of marijuana, between 2008 and 2010, at a sale price of $ 1800 the book.

    The producer would thus have earned gains beyond $ 800,000 in three years with the cultivation and sale of husband.

    The producer Vinh Thuy Doan has qualified the figures of the ARQ of the ” overstated “, arguing that the pot could have been for him to earn less than $60,000.

    Arguments “not credible” and “corroborated by any evidence,” concluded the judge Breault.

    In September of last year, the POLICE revealed to the Newspaper that the underworld of asian had taken the “monopoly” of the indoor cultivation of pot in Montreal, Laval and Longueuil, buying and transforming hundreds of buildings in plantations.
