The city has shuttered 21 medical marijuana dispensaries in recent months at interim Mayor Todd Gloria’s behest after the illegal businesses proliferated throughout San Diego as a result of lax enforcement by former Mayor Bob Filner.
Also, to make a point, his efforts are in vain (by design, pay attention grasshoppers), to no avail whatsoever: He "closes" one PB herb shop and two more pop up at the same address, but then again, the UT, CityBeat, et al, do a lousy job of reporting the actual herb news. Both of the new shops are better than the last, btw, at least these don't have gang affiliations, as far as this reporter knows.
The Feds are in cahoots with the pharmaceutical industry which needs to keep medical marijuana out of the hands of sick patients so they end up buying & using the toxic drugs the pharmaceuticals pitch to doctors. It's always all about the money.
Federal Agents are guilty of Treason against the State of CA and it's laws. If CA Law Enforcement had any kind of backbone they would arrest the feds whenever they trespass in our state. Just remember the Feds will respect state law. The only thing they respect is abuse of power. It is time for the People of the USA to abuse them back.
Drug enforcement agents in San Diego County are concerned about the latest trends among illegal marijuana growers: County and federal agents are finding more marijuana is being grown in indoor labs and more people are extracting hash oil, the honey-like substance that comes from burning the marijuana plant.
Fifty-five indoor marijuana labs were discovered in San Diego County this year. One out of four were extracting hash oil, which also led to explosions or house fires in up to 15 homes.
