CALIFORNIA SUES LOWELL HERB CO. FOR UNLICENSED PROCESSING

The California Dept. of Food and Agriculture is suing California brand Lowell Herb Co. and associated entities for allegedly engaging in commercial cannabis activity without a license.

Lowell attracted attention this year for opening California’s first cannabis restaurant. Before the suit landed, it said it was dropping “Lowell” from the restaurant’s name.
