The report goes on to say…
Sixteen months after authorities used sledgehammers to break down the doors to Med-West Distribution, at one time the largest cannabis distributor in California, San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis filed felony charges Wednesday against the former owner and associates.
The DA’s office charged 12 counts of criminal conduct, including manufacturing a controlled substance, conspiracy to commit a crime, and money laundering, which allegedly yielded an ill-gotten profit of $3.2 million in 2015.
Filed in San Diego County Superior Court, the complaint alleges that Slatic and his employees used “flammable, volatile and toxic chemicals” to extract cannabis oil and conspired to hide evidence of the process before a visit from city inspectors to Med-West’s property. If convicted on all charges, the defendants could face up to 15 years and 4 months behind bars, according to a San Diego DA press release.
