Commercial Cannabis Activity Without a State License Warning Letters Sent
California state cannabis regulators fired a warning shot this week, sending out hundreds of warning letters to businesses suspected of engaging in commercial cannabis activity without a state license.
Most of the letters, which threaten civil and criminal penalties, have gone out to retail storefronts and delivery services believed to be operating illegally, according to Alex Traverso, communications chief for the state Bureau of Cannabis Control.
“We’ve sent out several hundred of these letters in just the past couple days,” he told Leafly on Friday. “Much like we’ve been visiting licensees and doing compliance checks focused on education, these letters represent the first step in the Bureau’s efforts against unlicensed operators.”
We did not receive a cease and desist letter 3/8/2018 🙂
