A California agency filed a lawsuit against Lowell Herb, alleging the Los Angeles-based company processed marijuana without a license in the state’s San Luis Obispo County between December 2018 and March 2019.

The California Department of Food and Agriculture and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife seized roughly 17,772 pre-rolls, 7,162 jars of marijuana flower and more than 1,400 pounds of cannabis product.

The suit claims the illegal operation helps the illicit marijuana market and harms licensed cannabis companies.
