California Regulators Shut Down Two Unlicensed Cannabis Companies

Regulators in California have begun serving warrants and seizing product from unlicensed cannabis businesses in the state.

Full story after the jump.

According to an announcement from the Bureau of Cannabis Control, two businesses in Sacramento and Los Angeles County have been subject to search warrants due to operating without a license, according to a press release.

The Bureau of Cannabis Control and the Department of Consumer Affairs’ Division of Investigation served search warrants to two businesses. The unlicensed cannabis delivery service “Nollie Green-Blu Solutions” in Fair Oaks, California and the unlicensed retailer “Smoking Aces” in Los Angeles.

The delivery service crackdown was the result of complaints received by the Bureau of Cannabis Control. Police and regulators seized $250,000 of cannabis and cannabis products from Nollie Green-Blu Solutions and $27,637 from Smoking Aces. Two firearms and six people were also arrested in Los Angeles.

This follows the ending of a grace period on January 9 for unlicensed businesses in California. It’s unclear if more enforcement will follow, but there are still estimated to be hundreds of unlicensed cannabis businesses operating in California and regulators have been clear that those without licenses are taking their changes with law enforcement after the deadline.
