Oversized marijuana truck hits Cal Poly overpass

May 5, 2016

legalize-marijuana-california-environmentA truck filled with marijuana crashed into the railroad overpass on the Cal Poly campus on Monday evening. The driver then fled without the top of his truck, which had been severed in the accident.

Shortly afterwards, officers found the truck and identified the driver, but they did not arrest the man, according to university officials. The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office is not disclosing whether the driver was transporting medical marijuana, citing an ongoing investigation.

Around 5 p.m., university police received a report that a truck had hit the overpass on Highland Drive and fled the scene. University police then informed local law enforcement to be on the lookout for the truck.

About an hour later, CHP officers located the truck on Highway 101 at El Campo Road near Arroyo Grande. Sheriff’s narcotics detectives then determined the truck was carrying marijuana.

Authorities impounded the truck and identified the driver as 20-year-old San Jose resident James Mendaros.

University police submitted a recommended charge of hit-and-run to the county district attorney’s office. The sheriff’s office is considering filing additional charges.

      Cannabis will soon be legal, and it appears Cal Poly is already to go with a major in Marijuana growing/development. I’m sure the College of Business is ready to go with a major in the business aspect cannabis distribution and sales. They do it all with grapes; might as well get going on the evil weed.
