COVNIA- During the week of July 20, 2020, the California Bureau of Cannabis Control's Cannabis Enforcement Unit, with the assistance of LA Impact, the Los Angeles County Fire Department and the California Department of Public Health, served a search warrant on an unlicensed distributor/manufacturer located in Covina. This location was a BHO lab in the middle of a residential neighborhood. The search warrant resulted in the seizure of cannabis flower and cannabis concentrates with an estimated retail value of $1.3 million.
“This type of illegal activity puts innocent lives at risk,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. “Thank you to the state investigators who are investigating illegal cannabis operations in an effort to protect the licensed business owners, the community and the environment. “
All commercial cannabis activity in California must be conducted on a premise with a valid license issued by the appropriate state cannabis licensing authority. Manufacturing, distributing or selling cannabis goods without a state license or at a location that is not licensed is a violation of state law.
