RESEDA – On September 8, 2020, the Bureau of Cannabis Control’s Cannabis Enforcement Unit, with the assistance of the Los Angeles Police Department and California Department of Food and Agriculture, served a search warrant on an unlicensed cannabis delivery and distribution operation located in Reseda. The search warrant resulted in the seizure of cannabis flower, concentrates and edibles with a retail value of more than $8 million.
While investigators were at the location, they obtained evidence that there was an unlicensed indoor cannabis cultivation operation located next door. Investigators obtained a search warrant and seized plants with an estimated retail value of more than $500,000.
“State investigators are targeting unlicensed cannabis operations to protect consumers and to protect licensed businesses,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. “There is no quality control with unlicensed businesses and some product could put consumers at risk.”
All commercial cannabis activity in California must be conducted on a premise with a valid license issued by the appropriate state cannabis licensing authority. Selling cannabis goods without a state license or at a location that is not licensed is a violation of state law.
