A new marijuana task force created by the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office served its first search warrant Wednesday, Aug. 22, shutting down what it said was an unlicensed dispensary in Jurupa Valley.
Several pounds of cannabis, THC pods, edibles, paraphernalia, wax and vape cartridges were seized, according to a DA’s news release. Several people were detained but not arrested as the investigation continues.
The dispensary was operating out of a modular trailer on a dirt lot that had been advertising on marijuana-related websites as The Mission and 35 CAP. An online search shows a location for 35 CAP in the 5500 block of Mission Boulevard.
The partners in the Cannabis Regulation Task Force include the Hemet Police Department.
The task force’s goal is to ensure fair business practices and keep crime out of the legal cannabis industry in the county and its communities, the release said.
