The DEA, along with local and state police, arrested 43 people as part of a major drug bust in Colorado that involves thousands of pounds of marijuana that was intended to be shipped outside of the state.

Authorities, who are calling “Operation Toker Poker” the state’s largest marijuana bust, said the suspects in the multi-state scheme were exploiting Colorado’s law that allows the sale of recreational marijuana, CBS4 in Denver reports. 

According to law enforcement, many of the suspects moved their marijuana grow operations to Colorado to pose as cannabis caregivers in order to launder more than $200,000 per month.

The marijuana was grown out of the suspects’ homes.

Nearly 20 suspects are still on the loose.

“When you think the Denver Police Department and the DEA are going after users, I can tell you, after 30 years of doing this, we don’t care about marijuana users, we never have and we never will,” said DEA Assistant Special Agent-In-Charge David A. Schiller. “We care about those coming into our state, taking advantage of the laws.”
