Stiiizy’s Founder Built An L.A. Cannabis Empire, While Being Landlord To Illegal Dispensaries

The discovery of a black market dispensary in 2019 set off the initial investigation

The sign on the building said Jerry’s Liquor, but inside, Compton code enforcement inspectors found a cannabis dispensary called Fly High 20 Collective.
