The state-sanctioned industry has agreed that illicit bud is, “without question the single most pressing issue facing the state’s legal cannabis industry.”
And that’s why busts and seizures are on the rise up and down California.
- The state’s Bureau of Cannabis Control is conducting up to four operations a week.
- So far in 2020, agents at the California Bureau of Cannabis Control alone have seized nearly 24 tons of illegal weed. In 2018 the Highway Patrol grabbed and destroyed more than 80 tons of beautiful marijuana.
- Most of the Bureau’s activity has been down south, in L.A., Orange, San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino counties
