FALLBROOK, Calif. — Deputies investigating reports of an unlicensed marijuana-dispensing operation in Fallbrook confiscated more than $10,000 worth of illicit cannabis products Thursday.

The sheriff’s personnel seized the contraband after simultaneously serving search warrants at two locations — one in a residential area on South Vine Street and the other in a business district on South Main Avenue, Detective Sgt. Pat Yates said.

Among the seized materials were 47 marijuana plants, about five pounds of processed cannabis and products containing hash oil, according to Yates.

There were no immediate arrests, and the investigation is ongoing.

The enforcement actions stemmed from “numerous complaints from community members in the area regarding narcotics activity,” Yates said.

    The term narcotic (/nɑrˈkɒtɨk/, from ancient Greek ναρκῶ narkō, “to make numb”) originally referred medically to any psychoactive compound with any sleep-inducing properties. In the United States it has since become associated with opiates and opioids, commonly morphine and heroin and their derivatives, such as hydrocodone. The term is, today, imprecisely defined and typically has negative connotations.[1][2] When used in a legal context in the U.S., a narcotic drug is simply one that is totally prohibited, or one that is used in violation of governmental regulation, such as codeine or morphine.
