For many reasons, we continue to take unlicensed marijuana shops very seriously. Since recreational use of marijuana became legal in 2018, we’ve been prosecuting 394 cases involving 313 unlicensed locations, shut down 197 of them and taken on 1,462 defendants.
In my weekly message I talk about why illegal cannabis poses major issues of public health as well as public safety—what we’re doing to combat it—and what the public needs to do.

The list of authorized marijuana businesses can be found at this link , and this week’s video message is HERE .

Happy Veterans Day!
