Feds Subpoena Records from Weedmaps in Criminal Cannabis Probe
Although popular cannabis directory Weedmaps recently announced they would no longer list illegal weed businesses on their app, federal criminal prosecutors are demanding the records of 30 companies that were or are listed there. According to an article on MarketWatch, federal prosecutors have subpoenaed records from Weedmaps in an investigation of California cannabis companies.
According to court records, the subpoena requires Weedmaps to turn over not just records on 30 past and current customers, but also those related to their own staff, investors, and accounting. The probe by the justice department appears to have been started to determine if Weedmaps and other cannabis businesses have complied with California state cannabis regulations as well as laws pertaining to purchasing cannabis over the internet.
