SACRAMENTO – The Bureau of Cannabis Control (Bureau) and the Department of Consumer Affairs’ Division of Investigation-Cannabis Enforcement Unit (DOI-CEU) today announced enforcement actions against two unlicensed cannabis businesses operating out of multiple locations in Sacramento, Davis and Los Angeles.

The search warrants covered two locations: 204 F St., Ste. A1 in Davis, and 1779 Tribute Rd, Ste. 6 in Sacramento. The operation resulted in the seizure of $854,812 in cannabis products.

DOI-CEU also assisted the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department in serving a separate search warrant on Tuesday, February 27, 2019, on “Space Lounge,” an unlicensed cannabis retailer located at 1710 N.

All commercial cannabis activity in California requires a state-issued license from one of the state’s three cannabis licensing authorities. Selling cannabis goods without a state license is a violation of state law. To file a complaint regarding illegal activity, click here – Enforcement Online Services.
