San Diego marijuana delivery crackdown results in 34 arrests

Over the past calendar year, San Diego police have shuttered at 11 prohibited cannabis delivery operations within the city, detained 34 suspects, issued 15 search warrants and confiscated 230 pounds of marijuana and $60,000 in cash.

The only efficient way to deal with the problem, many business advocates say, is to provide such businesses with a means into the legal market. To put it differently, issue company licenses.

And yet delivery businesses continue to flourish in San Diego but around California.

In accordance with San Diego TV channel NBC 7, only licensed bud storefronts in the city are allowed to do deliveries, but that hasn’t retained “dozens” of illegal delivery operations out of advertisements online.

“If you want the black market to go away, give them a path for legalization,” one former San Diego store owner told NBC 7.

“If we have the same opportunities to be licensed and be regulated, all those issues would kind of disappear how they have with the legal dispensaries. ”
