While the nation's attorney general is calling for a crackdown on legal marijuana, a former California Attorney General is launching his own marijuana distribution business, reports the Orange County Register.

Bill Lockyer, who served as the Golden State's top cop from 1999 to 2007, is co-founder of C4 Distro, a Newport Beach-based company that hopes to distribute cannabis between licensed retailers.

Lockyer, who has experience fighting Washington on the issue of legal marijuana, is among a small but growing group of people making the switch from government to the cannabis industry.

Distributors are the only entities legally allowed to transport marijuana between other licensed businesses. C4 Distro — the business name for Golden Systems LLC — plans to focus on picking up manufactured marijuana products, such as edibles and concentrates, and delivering them to shops that sell them to the public.
