The Department of Cannabis Regulation is working to clamp down on unlicensed dispensaries, but that can be a game of whack-a-mole. Turn off the power of one unlicensed dispensary, and they open up shop in another place. 

Assemblywoman Blanca Rubio worked with the United Cannabis Business Association on a bill that would propose a $30,000 penalty for folks involved in the unlicensed market.
