Vendors are always at risk carrying around pounds of medical marijuana. Dispensaries are at risk every time a new patient enters their establishment. What happens when a group of thugs set up a fake dispensary and calls a vendor to bring marijuana by for their patients? An ambush that’s what! With the medical marijuana climate in Southern California ever-changing, the last thing a vendor needs to deal with is fake dispensaries. But that’s what happened in Fullerton, CA this last week.
They setup a ruse.” says Sergeant Ruse of Fullerton Police Department.
The three men taped a green cross on the front door of a building located in an industrial part of town in Fullerton. The green cross is an identifying symbol that has been adopted by many dispensaries within the medical marijuana industry. When the vendor arrived with several pounds of marijuana, he was jumped by the three men and pistol-whipped. The men got away with about nine pounds of marijuana worth around $20,000 which was roughly half of what the driver was carrying. Police say much of the pot was scattered on the floor during the struggle which the driver was able to recover. The driver was delivering from Oakland authorities say.
Now vendors and delivery drivers have to worry about asshats setting up fake dispensaries with fake security guards just for trying to help patients get their meds.
