A verdict is expected tomorrow in Port Orchard, but there’s another decision coming up in a more high profile medical marijuana case. Legal medical marijuana dispensary owner Charlie Lynch, who opened his dispensary with the Morro Bay, California mayor by his side, was raided by DEA agents after the San Luis Obispo County sheriff invited them to do so. Lynch was then convicted by a jury that was not allowed to know that he was legally authorized to dispense marijuana to card-carrying patients. His sentencing was supposed to be this week, but the judge postponed the decision to get some clarification from the Justice Department. According to Attorney General Holder, dispensary owners who follow state laws will no longer be targeted by the Feds.
At the end of this post, you can watch a great video by Drew Carey (Go Sounders!) about Lynch and one of his patients.
