Three armed robbers held up a medical marijuana farm and dispensary. They thought they hit the jockpot with their haul of organically-grown, medical-grade marijuana.
Unfortunately for the robbers, this was specially-produced marijuana specifically for medical patients that lack the THC necessary to receive the “high” feeling most users get when smoking or otherwise ingesting the typical types of marijuana.
“I’m sure much later they’ll find out that these are non-psychoactive plant materials that won’t get them high,” explained Darryl Cotton, owner of the dispensary who actually arrived at his store as the robbery was taking place. “They were designed for patients.”
The San Diego Union Tribune reported that the suspects fled the scene in two vehicles, one of which was a rented van. An employee was able to follow the van for a short distance and get the license plate number.
Police discovered the rental van a short time later. The driver was questioned and released, because he didn’t fit the description of the suspects.
Conservative Tribune reports:
A trio of armed robbers who held up a medical marijuana farm and dispensary in San Diego, California, are in for a disappointing surprise if they expected to get high from their stolen goods.
According to KSWB, three men wearing masks, and at least one of whom held a handgun, entered the 151 Farmers marijuana and food store in Encanto shortly before 11 a.m. Saturday, demanding cash and stealing several bags of organically-grown medical-grade marijuana.
