Dope Hope? Um, Nope

No Lighthouse Ave pot club

The council initially approved the moratorium at its Jan. 19 meeting for a 45-day period in response to the opening of a medical marijuana club, MyCaregiver Inc., at 554 Lighthouse Ave.

Other factors included uncertainty about federal and state laws, lack of specific mention of such facilities in Monterey’s municipal code, and increases in crime in cities where the dispensaries are permitted, particularly burglaries,robberies and illegal sales related to marijuana transactions.

Dopes With Hope? Nope

If you think there are cops around, don’t go looking for the drop off. LOL.

Two men were arrested Monday after apparently trying to retrieve a hidden marijuana stash from the Pacific Grove High School campus, police reported.

School staff found a Mason jar full of marijuana in a wooded area near the soccer field. When officers arrived to investigate, they saw Sean Paul Kilpatrick, 27, and Cory Wayne Peters, 24, both of Pacific Grove, appearing to intently search the same area.

P.G. Says No To Pot Sales

Though they bow down to liquor stores.

Residential Care Facilities, eh? Maybe Canturbury Woods can use the homes on Spazier to grow pot now that people are not allowed to live there.

Apot-hacary

The ordinance, prepared at the council’s direction by City Attorney David Laredo, prohibits “growing, selling, distributing or operating marijuana dispensaries” medical or otherwise.

There are exclusions, Laredo said, for health care, residential care or hospice facilities to provide marijuana to patients who hold doctors’ prescriptions for cannabis, and residents can grow plants “in strict compliance with the (state) compassionate use act.”

New Monterey Marijuana Market Gets Lawyer

Richard Rosen, LOL. Defender of David Stamm and Chowdergate lawyer.

No Lighthouse Ave pot club

Richard Rosen and Jeanine Strong say they will not only prove the nonprofit co-op is operating legally, but will go after the “real violators” — local governments and law enforcement agencies that have refused to implement the medicinal marijuana law.

In the 14 years since the Compassionate Care Act legalized medicinal marijuana in the state, said Rosen, not one medical marijuana facility has been authorized in the county.

“While the rest of the state is following the law, Monterey County is and has been consistently flaunting the law,” he said. “It’s a terrible and dangerous policy because when government ignores the law, it encourages everyone to ignore the law.”

The rest of the state is realizing that it’s about money and not compassion. They are closing down dispensaries.

L.A. Times:

The city of Los Angeles has warned 439 medical marijuana dispensaries that they must shut their doors by June 7. City prosecutors began notifying dispensary operators the first week of May, the first step in what could be a lengthy and expensive legal battle to regain control over pot sales.

New Monterey Marijuana Pushers Getting Pushed Out

Gilroy got court orders to close their illegal pot store, Monterey seeks same.

No Lighthouse Ave pot club

Monterey City officials are seeking a permanent court order to shut down a medical marijuana dispensary that opened last year on Lighthouse Avenue.

A temporary order was issued in March by Monterey County Superior Court Judge Robert O’Farrell, in favor of the city, requiring MyCaregiver Inc. to close after the city sued.

Jesse Crow – Murder Suspect, Medical Marijuana Card Holder

and son of a medical marijuana dispensary owner/manager. Crow was picked up in P.G.

Jesse Crow

The first search warrant served on this peaceful medicine user is at KSBW.

When police arrived, Ryan’s family had blocked Jesse’s truck in the driveway and told police they believed Jesse had a history of abusing Ryan — abuse that had gone unreported — and they suggested Jesse had a drug operation because he didn’t have a job, but he seemed to have plenty of money.

The warrant also calls attention to Crow’s father — a physician — confirming that Dr. Crow runs a medical marijuana dispensary. The warrant said it operates out of Soledad.

Pot Smokers Protest On Lighthouse Ave

Standing in the street and on top of an old hippy VW. KSBW has several pictures on it’s site. Three out of the 5 are not even from Monterey. And one dog. They are not winning my sympathy.

Members of a Monterey cannabis club held a demonstration Monday afternoon, protesting a recent court order that prohibits them from dispensing medical marijuana at 554 Lighthouse Ave.

“We are trying to raise the public’s awareness in a positive manner,” Rowland said of the protest.
