In another nice scoop from Leafly‘s David Downs, California licensed SoCal company Kushy Punch was busted by the state Department of Consumer Affairs for allegedly running an unlicensed cannabis factory as well as a licensed one.
- A source told Downs the company used the unlicensed factory to process flower it believed would not pass California’s pesticide standards. Products produced there, including vapes, are then sold on the illegal market.
- Kushy Punch CEO Ruben Cross didn’t respond to Leafly‘s requests for comment.
- In California, quite a few former politicians are finding their way into the cannabis industry. ��WeedWeek California has more.
- Jorge Pupo, the top Nevada regulator who a lawsuit alleges was too cozy with some successful license applicants is out of a job. (Pupo didn’t return Leafly’s requests for comment.) ��WeedWeek California has more.
