19 trucks illegally selling Cannabis in legal New York Seized by Police

FOOD TRUCK

Retail licences for adult-use weed have not yet been issued.

New York City police recently took to the streets to clamp down on illegal weed trucks that are popping up everywhere by seizing 19 of the pot shops on wheels.

“Up in smoke,” a tweet this week from Jeffrey Maddrey, chief of patrol for the New York City Police Department, notes of the bust.

“19 illegal vehicles and cannabis seized off the streets of NYC. While others follow the rules, these trucks and their vendors don’t have permits so we took action!” Maddrey continued.

“If you are looking to buy illegal Cannabis from the Weed World Bus located on 5th Avenue & 40th street it is no longer open for business. We do not anticipate it opening for business anytime soon!” Maddrey noted in a tweet this week.

One commenter asked, “Did you get ‘Uncle Budd’ on 116 and FDB in Harlem? There every day.”

This past June, deputies with the city’s sheriff’s office seized about a dozen Weed World Candies vehicles, reportedly for parking debts.

According to NBC New York, the company has paid a couple hundred thousand of its half million dollars in outstanding parking tickets.

A short video of the newly confiscated vehicles this week, most of which are plastered with images of marijuana leaves and include trucks with cabs and buses, shows 10 of them parked and idle in what could be a police parking lot.

Per PIX11, Maddrey said none of the vehicles had licences from the Department of Health and that the seizures were part of efforts to address quality-of-life issues in NYC after 311 complaints.
