The city of Los Angeles has sued an unlicensed marijuana dispensary accused of illegally selling pot containing a dangerous pesticide typically used to treat golf-course turf, the city’s top prosecutor announced Wednesday.
Mike Feuer, the L.A. city attorney, said that prosecutors are seeking an injunction against the dispensary, Kush Club 20, for selling marijuana without a permit that tested positive for paclobutrazol, a plant growth regulator and fungicide.
The lawsuit is the first to be brought against an unlicensed dispensary accused of selling pesticide-laden pot since California began allowing regulated marijuana shops to operate more than a year earlier, the city’s attorney’s office said.
Prosecutors are seeking an injunction to evict the dispensary from its location in South L.A. and penalties of up to $20,000 for each day it remains open.
