The San Luis Osbiso Tribune reports…….State officials filed a civil action in San Luis Obispo Superior Court against a Los Angeles-based cannabis company after a search of its Nipomo warehouse allegedly revealed the company was operating without a processor’s license.
The California Attorney General’s Office, on behalf of the state Department of Food and Agriculture, filed a civil complaint Friday against Lowell Farms, also known as Lowell Herb Co., as well as its CEO, David Elias, and co-owner Brett Myers Vapnek for alleged violation of the Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act.
On March 13, state authorities raided the company’s warehouse located in the 800 block of Mesa Road in Nipomo, according to the Attorney General’s Office. The facility was used to process and store cannabis for Lowell Herb Co.’s well-known brand of pre-rolled joints.
During the operation, officers with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife seized 184 boxes containing about 18,000 pre-rolled joints and a tote locker containing approximately 19 lbs of pre-rolled joints, according to the complaint.
