Law enforcement raided and ransacked the essential business making it impossible for the local community to pick up their medicine in this time of crisis. Guns drawn, officers got uncomfortably close to the volunteers' faces, invading their personal spaces, not at all concerned with exposing them to the recent outbreak of the deadly coronavirus, COVID-19.
The officers rounded up the patients and volunteers like a herd during this time of social distancing, violated their rights and wrecklessly placed all of their lives in danger -- Which draws up another questions: Are handcuffs being properly sanitized? Why are cops still raiding pot shops when weed is legal? Shouldn't our heroes be out saving people and making a real difference.
Patients will only have to travel further as they will still be in search of their needed meds. Seized meds and cash were not properly documented. Meds and cash did not just disappear into thin air, or did it?
This isn't the first time this has happened. Earlier this year in January in the case of Mota vs. the State of California, an on duty police officer during an offical police raid was caught red handed on surveillance pocketing cash and other personal property. This couldn't be made up either. Yes, Mota, was stripped of his badge, but only faced misdemeanor charges.
The raided a licensed dispensary? Doubt it..but I'll wait
Pigs are still robbing dispensaries? Damn.. that's dirty. Just let the people pick up meds in peace!
Dont worry, Ill wait.
So the cops raided an illegally operating dispensary?! ????
If the photo is of the dispensary raided, it is an illegal shop. You can tell by how the nug is displayed and likely weighed and sold. Still crappy how they run raids and treat people during them, but not uncommon to have raids occurring in California.
