Medical Marijuana Raid in San Luis Obispo County Raises Questions

San Luis Obispo Tribune: “on Dec. 27, 45 to 50 officers started serving the search warrants over three days at seven locations. Fifteen people were arrested on various allegations of possessing and selling marijuana. . . . Law enforcement officials say the arrestees were selling and transporting marijuana illegally throughout San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Monterey counties, in violation of the state’s Compassionate Use Act and Medical Marijuana Program.   [The defendants] operated collectives. . . . groups that form to cultivate marijuana for medical purposes for patient and caregiver members. They should only provide a means for facilitating or coordinating transactions between members — and should not purchase marijuana from, or sell to, nonmembers.  They also cannot make a profit.”
