On Wednesday, The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) revealed further details about their investigation into certain California marijuana businesses. The federal agency alleged in a new filing that it issued subpoenas for records on three marijuana companies and three individuals earlier this year as part of an investigation into possible illegal importation and transportation of marijuana oil from Mexico. The state Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) said in its own brief last week in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California the agency failed to adequately explain the subpoenas relevance to an investigation and state privacy laws prevented them from sharing the documents. The DEA disagreed, stating in the latest filing that the DEA explained to the BCC why it was requesting the documents and each new filing has unveiled additional information about what the federal government is looking into.
