US (CA): Cannabis business owner accused of illegal grow operation

A Palm Springs cannabis owner is defending herself after the city revoked all three of her licenses amid allegations that she was illegally cultivating in a space she was not licensed to. Joy Meredith, the woman in question, said she is fighting back against her businesses being shut down in an appeal she's now filed.

"It's a very disappointing situation right now and we're trying to get to the bottom of it," Meredith said.

Meredith is only licensed for cannabis cultivation in Unit #6. Code enforcement officers said they reviewed video surveillance footage provided to them by Meredith, showing hundreds of cannabis plants in Unit #7, where she is not licensed. They said the video then cuts out for about the next 40 minutes, and when it returns all the plants are gone.
