BCC Investigators Target Unlicensed Cannabis Activity in Woodland Hills

WOODLAND HILLS -  On March 4, 2021,   the California Bureau of  Cannabis Control’s Cannabis Enforcement Unit (CEU), with the assistance of the Los Angeles Police Department and the California Department of Food and Agriculture, served a multi-location search warrant on an unlicensed cannabis distributor and cultivator in Woodland Hills. The search warrant resulted in the seizure of thousands of plants, cannabis flower and concentrates with an estimated retail value of more than $1.5 million. In addition, CEU investigators also seized more than $140,000 in cash.

“There is a tremendous amount of large-scale unlicensed cannabis operations  in California which not only works against California’s economy, it often contributes to a decrease in the quality of life for those living near these unlicensed operations,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.

Engaging in commercial cannabis activity without a license is subject to civil penalties of up to three times the amount of the license fee for each day of operation.
