The ongoing story of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s probe into three cannabis companies took a turn this week when a new court filing by the agency clarified that unlawful traffic of THC oil from Mexico is at the heart of its investigation.
- Last week the Bureau of Cannabis Control submitted a brief in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California stating it opted not to comply with federal subpoenas because the agency had not properly explained the need for the requested information.
- In the latest brief, the agency wrote, “Specifically, the DEA told the BCC that it was looking into the possible importation/transportation of a controlled substance from Mexico by specific licensees.”
- By a vote of 4-1, on Monday the West Hollywood City Council agreed to give licenses to the city’s four original dispensaries. The quartet had secured enough signatures to get their issue on the Nov. 3 ballot.
