The Clovis Police Department says it has seized cannabis products from a dispensary that allegedly was manufacturing without a proper license.
Authorities say the state’s Regulation and Licensing Department (RLD) contacted police to report that a dispensary was selling illicit cannabis products. According to KFDA in Texas, when police investigated the business, they allegedly found that the operators were manufacturing products inside the dispensary without a license. After obtaining a search warrant, officers were able to find a handwritten ledger detailing illicit sales.
Officers seized around 19.5 pounds of flower, 4.4 pounds of edibles and a pound of THC oil. Charges are pending.
Pesticide Testing Finds High Levels
Santa Fe Reporter tested some cannabis strains sold at New Mexico dispensaries and found that a number of the samples contained levels of pesticides that would have failed state testing requirements had they been in place already.
The RLD has codified rules requiring cannabis producers to test their products for certain pesticides. But those rules were not in effect when producers began growing cannabis for the adult-use market.
