Police Destroy 126 Pounds of Marijuana at Unlicensed Fairfield Store
According to the Kennebec Journal, Fairfield Police confiscated nearly 200 marijuana plants and destroyed over 125 pounds of processed marijuana on Wednesday.
The Kennebec Journal reports that Fairfield Police executed a search warrant this week at the YEZI Local Craft Marijuana Retail Store. The store is on Norridgewock Road in the vicinity of Fairfield Center and is a medical dispensary. However, the store was continuing to operate despite the fact that the business's license had been revoked.
The KJ reports that the warrant was obtained after multiple attempts to get the business to stop all operations had failed.
The KJ dug in to find out why the business had their license revoked in the first place, but they were told by Matt Grondin, the Office of Cannabis Policy media director, that the information is in fact confidential and that the process of appeals is still 'available and ongoing'.
