In an effort to waste time, or whatever, Santa Clara County authorities on Thursday busted several medical marijuana clubs selling weed in the county. "An official with the County Special Enforcement Team said narcotics agents served warrants on two MediLeaf medical marijuana clubs in San Jose and properties in Gilroy and Morgan Hill," reports AP (via CBS 5)."Task force commander Danielle Ayers said agents shut down the clubs, seized marijuana, documents and computers."
The Mercury News goes on to reports that the recent bust was "the latest in a series of actions against medical marijuana" clubs in the area. The Merc goes on to report: "Danielle Ayers, task force commander of the County Special Enforcement Team, said the MediLeaf owner is suspected of illegally selling marijuana and money laundering."
Good grief, wouldn't it make more sense to burn the money it cost to conduct these raids, dig a 20-foot hole in the earth, and then bury the ashes of said scorched money? Yes. Yes, it would. While we understand that recreational pot smokers over the age of 30 are annoying as all hell -- and that federal law doesn't recognize Proposition 215 -- we do appreciate the Bay Area's relentless supply of medicinal marijuana for those in need. We tip our hat to those fighting the good, pain-relieving, sticky-bud fight.
Also, Vicodin makes us too itchy. So, thanks for all you do, pot clubs.
