San Diego police continue crackdown on illegal dispensaries

San Diego police raided two illegal dispensaries as part of the city’s ongoing effort to shutter illicit marijuana businesses.

Authorities seized 30 pounds of marijuana and $37,000 from The Healing Center, City News Service reported, and four employees were arrested. The other facility, Kush Factory, was closed for renovation, so police didn’t find much product.

San Diego police have also warned delivery drivers that they could be prosecuted for working with illegal marijuana dispensaries, according to the news outlet.

San Diego is among the California cities preparing for the launch of the state’s legal marijuana industry in January 2018.

Since March 2016, San Diego police and the city attorney’s office have shuttered over 60 illicit cannabis dispensaries, according to TV station NBC 7 San Diego.
