This is a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:

The Humboldt County Drug Enforcement Unit served the search warrant on the property and discovered an operating BHO lab, two indoor marijuana grows, and an outdoor marijuana grow. Two-hundred and seven plants and one pound of processed marijuana were seized. The BHO lab equipment was seized along with 6.25 lbs of product, 17 lbs of marijuana trim/shake, 3.6 lbs of processed marijuana bud, 2.5 lbs of THC edibles, 23 cylindrical glass extraction tubes, digital scales, packaging materials, and sales documentation. No one was on scene. This case will be forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.

Both suspects were in possession of doctors recommendation for medicinal marijuana, however, the marijuana grow operation was out of compliance due to the number of plants.

  • WTF with that many plants . In the city limits of pukreaka . That is just nuts .did he think he wasn’t going to get busted. I bet a 1/4 of the pukreaka new about it .I bet they are Growing pot to buy meth ,and heroin .

  • Pretty stupid!bet your right mogtx!!

  • Looks like complete gross shwag anyway. Very low budget. Probably doing people a service by not letting this shit get consumed. Who runs an operation where you are actually packaging products and don’t try for a permit??

  • veterans friend

    Can you really get a license for a bho lab?
    That seems insane…..oh wait I remember now. It’s Humboldt

    • You can apply for one but none have been approved yet.

    • you can apply, but butane wont make it past environmental health regulations, so “i applied for a permit” gets a grey market pass until the rules are on paper. butane oils will be exclusively black market very soon.
