A Notice of Violation from the Vermont Cannabis Control Board cites video evidence of Devon Deyhle, owner of Tall Truck (a Tier 1 indoor growing operation), delivering cannabis to the business on the Tall Truck Instagram profile. It cites him for delivering cannabis into the illicit market in New York City. Someone reported the video to the Vermont Cannabis Control Board, and Deyhle ended up paying a $20,000 fine for transporting cannabis outside of Vermont.
In addition to the fine, the board initially suspended Deyhle’s license for 60 days. Deyhle was also fined another $10,000 for making a false statement to the board, allegedly when he told the board he would not be selling cannabis out of state, and an additional $10,000 for allegedly diverting Vermont cannabis to the illicit New York market. Those additional punishments were suspended.
Editor’s note: Deyhle did not lose his license in Vermont despite the clear violations, making false statements, and transporting cannabis across state lines.
