An employee of the Go Green Compassionate Care Collective was delivering medical marijuana to a patient when the robber approached him with a handgun in the 500 block of East Cook Street around 7:30 p.m.

“The suspect demanded two cases full of marijuana products the victim was attempting to deliver to a patient,” said Santa Maria Police Sgt. Russ Mengel.

No injuries occurred. The suspect, who was in his early 20s, fled by foot and remained at large.

    The robber must have either known the patient, or the delivery driver. How else would he know what was in the cases? Either that or he has a skunky sense of smell.

    As long as marijuana remains in the legal purgatory between feds and states, this beat will go on.

      For the same reason the liquor stores and parmacies are open……it is legal in this state and soon to be across the country. From your posting you sound like you have a legitimate case of anxiety and could use some medication! Probably due to your hangover…..
