Unlicensed Cannabis Operations Busted in Sacramento and Los Angeles

SACRAMENTO – On February 7, 2019, the California Bureau of Cannabis Control and the Department of Consumer Affairs’ Division of Investigation-Cannabis Enforcement Unit (DOI-CEU) announced enforcement action on two unlicensed cannabis businesses in the state, one operating in Sacramento County and one in Los Angeles.

On January 31, 2019, DOI-CEU served a search warrant on “Nollie Green-Blu Solutions,” an unlicensed cannabis delivery service in Fair Oaks. The investigation was conducted based upon a complaint received by the Bureau. The search warrant resulted in the seizure of cannabis and cannabis products valued at more than $250,000.

DOI-CEU also assisted the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) with serving a separate search warrant on February 5, 2019, on “Smoking Aces,” an unlicensed cannabis retailer. The operation resulted in the seizure of $27,637 in cannabis products. Two firearms were seized at the scene and six suspects were arrested under LAPD’s warrant.

“Legalized marijuana is new to California, and violators are quickly learning that commercial cannabis operations require a state-issued license,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  “This is for consumer protection and the protection of those business owners who are following the proper procedures.”

All commercial cannabis activity in California requires a state-issued license from one of the state’s three cannabis licensing authorities. Selling cannabis goods without a state license is a violation of state law.
