This previous week SB sheriff and SB police served warrants at 3 diverse dispensaries, Assisting Hands (Santa Barbara), Decision Dispensary (Goleta) and Assisting Hands (San Diego) resulting in the arrest of 3 individuals and dispensaries becoming shut down. James More difficult,30, Craig Corneal, 29, and Laura Bertucci, 24, had been all arrested and charged with felony drug trafficking and felony money laundering.
“The arrests produced out of a year long investigation into illegally operating dispensaries which had been operating well beyond the recommendations of Proposition 215/Senate Bill 420 – Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Dept.
Major Statistics of the Raid:
* Corneal was arrested at a residence off Shoreline Drive in Goleta, he had 11 pounds of processed marijuana and $ two,400 in cash when the sheriffs arrived. * Harder was identified with $ 70,000 in money, developing gear and a modest variety of plants * Sheriffs seized 75 pounds of processed cannabis, hundreds of edibles, $ twenty,000 and automated teller machines from Santa Barbara’s Helping Hands dispensary * one,one hundred plants, a number of pounds of hash items and modest sum of money was taken from the Goleta Decision dispensary * 35 pounds, $ 17,000 cash was taken from the San Diego based Helping Hands * Corneal and Bertucci have been booked at County Jail with bail set at $ two million every, More challenging bail was $ 500,000
This raid comes right after a prior bust of above 91,000 plants there were located in a week lengthy back nation raid in Santa Barbara’s stunning foothills. The 3 dispensaries and their owners above developed this predicament out of pure disrespect for the legal regulations allowing them to operate and the city council and folks trying to keep them in enterprise. They were grossly and negligently operating outside of ALL healthcare marijuana recommendations and getting absolutely greedy turning a “company to support the medically needy” into a “wannabe gangster greed driven issue”.
There is no doubt that men and women who see Health-related Marijuana as a means to get rich fast and be a gangster will be punished. No one particular in the healthcare community agrees with their actions and only hopes that long term dispensaries will act respectfully towards our state, our law enforcement, and our individuals.
Sufferers come 1st, this is what it truly is all about. I hope that California citizens will not see these actions as representative of the medical marijuana neighborhood and know that this is a gross act of negligence on men and women who are NOT portion of our neighborhood.
