D.C. police busted a marijuana pop-up event where 30 people were arrested Friday night.

Police said members from the Fifth District Crime Suppression Team executed a search warrant in the 2200 block of 25th Place in Northeast D.C. at an event they described as "widely advertised and well attended."

Officers seized several pounds of marijuana, products containing THC from 28 vendors, more than $10,000 in currency and three firearms.

In the District of Columbia, anyone at least 21 years old can possess up to two ounces of marijuana and can give one ounce or less to another person over the legal age of 21. However, it is illegal to sell marijuana or exchange it for other goods and services.

In January, D.C. police conducted a drug bust at an apparent underground marijuana party at the XO Restaurant and Lounge in Northwest D.C. Police arrested 22 people while seizing 17 pounds of marijuana, 10 pounds of edibles and two quarts of THC-infused oils.
