A San Luis Obispo man is in jail after police busted his alleged black market marijuana distribution business.

Responding to a tip that 40-year-old Josephus Stallworth had been transporting and selling large quantities of marijuana, police detectives determined Stallworth was operating an illegal pot delivery service. On Tuesday, detectives served a search warrant at the suspect’s home on the 2900 block of Rockview Place.

During their search of Stallworth’s home, detectives seized more than 10,000 cannabis products and several thousand dollars. The pot products were fraudulently packaged to represent legal and lab tested cannabis products, police said.

“Licensed cannabis retailers are required to meet safety standards developed by the State of California and the Bureau of Cannabis Control,” according to police. “Consuming cannabis from an unlicensed retailer
can lead to serious health risks.”

Officers arrested Stallworth for selling marijuana without a license and booked him into the San Luis Obispo County Jail.

Before “legal” marijuana the police wouldn’t have cared about about just another pot dealer. If I bought marijuana I would never pay John Shoals/Jamie Jones/Helios Dayspring/John Peschong/Adam Hill corrupt prices, I’d buy it on the street and I urge others to do just that. JUST SAY NO.

Didn’t pay the tax man and got in trouble for it.

Black market? That seems a little harsh. Perhaps we should call it undocumented marijuana

RIGHT!!!


copperhead

it’s legal and not harmful as long as the government gets its sizable piece of the action. Black Market? Isn’t that racist?

I am old enough to remember when they tried to scare us away from marijuana with paraquat. You can mark me still safe ✅

In Sacramento As of 6 months ago 3 of the 4 marijuana testing labs have been busted for falsifying test results and/or not testing .1 lab was estimated to have let 100k lbs of untested weed to be approved. 1 lab forfeited their license

“”“Licensed cannabis retailers are required to meet safety standards developed by the State of California and the Bureau of Cannabis Control,” according to police. “Consuming cannabis from an unlicensed retailer

can lead to serious health risks.”””


The license magically cleanses the cannabis so it can no longer lead to serious health risks.


Well, actually there are no serious health risks but it sounds good and makes it seem like the license protects the public, which it does not.


Weed is no more illegal than it was back before it was legal.
