On the Central Coast of California, a large cannabis cultivation op finds itself on the verge of disaster as county supervisors recently decided to revoke their business permit.
The situation, as unfortunate as it is for the company, goes a long way in making an example of how cannabis businesses in the state must show they are following state and local laws.
CFAM Management Group has been accused of violating several codes, including:
- Uncontrolled cannabis odors off-property
- Unpermitted structures on-property
- Production of unpermitted goods
County officials say they aren’t expecting the business to rectify the issues; they have been in violation for the past three years.
The company manages an operation of over 330,000 square feet in Nipomo, California. Their operations include cultivation, a culture lab, and a drying and processing facility. They have been in operation (and violation of the law) since 2016.
As for now, the company’s future isn’t looking so bright. They were ordered to cease their operations entirely and immediately after their permit was revoked (according to the Tribune).
Also according to the Tribune, the CFAM’s attorney has stated that the company has actively been attempting to address a number of the issues putting their license at risk or being revoked.
All the above considered, the state’s Department of Food and Agriculture is now investigating the alleged violations. If found guilty, CFAM’s operations in Nipomo may be done for good.
