California BCC Investigators Bust Large-Scale Unlicensed Cannabis Delivery Service in Orange County

ORANGE COUNTY – On February 25, 2021, the California Bureau of Cannabis Control’s Bureau’s Cannabis Enforcement Unit, with the assistance of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration, served a multi-location search warrant on a large-scale unlicensed cannabis delivery service in Orange County known as Pharm OC and MLD Black Card.

During the operation, investigators obtained information that this organization had an additional location where they were possibly illegally manufacturing cannabis edibles. Investigators obtained a search warrant for this unlicensed manufacturing location and seized additional illegal products.

The search warrants resulted in the seizure of:

  • hundreds of pounds of cannabis flower,
  • more than 13,000 cannabis vape cartridges, edibles and concentrates with an estimated retail value of more than $7 million,
  • five firearms including an AK-47,
  • more than $100,000
  •  and a large quantity of psilocybin mushrooms.

“I am grateful this was a safe operation, and no one was hurt,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  “Law enforcement officers are sometimes confronted by  armed individuals during the service of search warrants involving illegal cannabis activity.”

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.
