The California Bureau of Cannabis Control has sent a cease-and-desist letter to the Irvine-based Ghost Management Group, which owns and operates Weedmaps, a popular listing guide for marijuana dispensaries.

The bureau wants Weedmaps to stop advertising those dispensaries that are not legally licensed to operate in the state. California, of course, became the biggest state in the country to legalize the sale of recreational marijuana this year.
