I, not a user of medical marijuana, find it very interesting that The Great State of California allows the legal sale of this substance, yet will not back up the rights of those legally selling said substance....what a gray area this is.

Not much of a grey area. Can't sell the stuff for profit. Don't really see what the debate is here. This place had no business license- which is illegal -and they were SELLING the stuff- which is illegal Federally and even in California. Pretty cut and dry. And I agree Wal Mart customers are probably wanted and have drugs on them. I would like that place shut down too, but you can't win em all, right?

John- how do you know they had no business license?? their was no explanation of WHY the dispensary got raided just that a couple people in the dispensary had warrants. Paul- i completely agree with you, i dont see why or how california can just look the other way when the dispensaries get shut down, patients have rights too. Terry- if they shut down every pharmacy in town and you had to drive to, lets say, Los Angeles to get your medicine when you need it, wouldnt that be an inconvenience and a burden to you? Colleen-The whole parents and their kids issue u brought up was, i guess, valid but no matter how the parents are or what kind of kid it is, if the kid is going to try marijuana, he is going to try marijuana plain and simple. some kids are strong enough not to give in to peer pressure, and others arent. and as far as, and i quote "the demand of bringing ANY of this into the town comes from the teenagers" and your ignorant self-righteous "yup,i said it!" comment afterward. I highly (no pun intended) doubt that when the GHC decided to open up where they did, they did it because of "the teenagers". and as for "Inside Info" the dispensaries cant get information such as "patients within "X mile" radius". Fabian-im disappointed in your comment, being the FIRST comment, and you say you'll just have to get your 'weed' from a teenager doesnt help the arguement patients are trying to get across to misinformed individuals that think we just want to "get high"

I am a patient. That said, this place was super shady anyhow. I am sure they were up to no good. I went there twice and both times they had no clue what they were even distributing as medicine. Was all kids always in there both times. Always stoned and usually to busy texting to know you were even standingthere. When I asked what would be best for my rhumatory arthritis, I was told , " I smoked this before leaving my buddies last night, I had to pull over twice cause I was blown." Not what I should be told as I shouldn't drive whilemedicated anyhow, and should be told that. Anyhow, shady, overpriced out for profit, I am glad this placeis gone. It's places like this that make Mmj look so bad. I
