Deputies arrested a Paso Robles teen caught trafficking cannabis on Interstate 80 in Nebraska earlier this month during a crackdown on smugglers.

Seward County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 18-year-old Alejandrino Martinez of Paso Robles after catching the teen transporting 145 pounds of marijuana with a street value of approximately $435,000. The teen is charged with possession with attempt to deliver, possession of more than a pound of pot and for no drug tax stamp.

Over a two week period, Seward County Sheriff deputies seized more than 500 pounds of cannabis and THC concentrate from drivers on Interstate 80, with an approximate street value of $3.3 million.

Of the five men arrested, four are California residents and one hails from Oregon, according to 1011 Now.

Can they link him back to Helios Dayspring and his front organization Megan’s Organic Market?

Helios Dayspring, Nick Andre, Quinn Brady, and Megan’s Organic Market rigged the dispensary selection process in the City of San Luis Obispo to make sure they would get more points, and it’s a fact that MOM INC aka Megan’s Organic Market is a front for Helios Dayspring. The City of SLO let MOM SLO LLC get away with falsifying the initial permit application which hid Helios Dayspring’s $1 million dollar convertible note/future controlling ownership. Obviously this was utilized to hide his attempts to monopolizing of the local industry.

Then in Feb 2021 the City allowed MOM SLO LLC to transfer ownership to MOM USA LLC which was formed to add an extra layer of ownership to hide the actual owners of newly formed MOM INC a Delaware Corporation with Nick Andre, Tara Graves, Megan Souza, Eric Powers, and Mark Cardona as its board of directors. The shareholders of MOM INC were never disclosed because Helios Dayspring is the majority owner. The original MOM SLO LLC permit application was intentionally fraudulent and the subsequent list of owners was fraudulent going so far as to list Mark Cardona’s wife rather than Mark to appear more female owned.

Why Delaware you ask? Because the shareholder information of Delaware Corporations are secret unless there is a law enforcement investigation. The City of SLO doesn’t want more egg on its face so they are refusing to investigate or admit their oversight.

Long live the race card.

Since Marijuana is legal in California the Police should package and sell confiscated Pot. A great way to lower the tax burden.

Haha, there is a lot of racial profiling going on in Trump Country.

Good. Moving drugs across state lines is a federal crime. Send them all away with the maximum sentence. I hope for the destruction of the cannabis industry as a whole, due the destruction it brings to individuals and families, Sick, absolutely sick.

If what you’re saying is true, then I’m sure you’d be in favor of alcohol prohibition as well, because study after study has shown that booze is far more detrimental to a person’s life than marijuana.

They’re both destructive to individuals and families. I expect those convicted of crimes involving alcohol to also receive the maximum sentence. No sense trying to justify the use one compared to the other. It doesn’t hold water. A weak attempt to justify your support of pot use. They both are a deadly burden on our nation ruled and promoted by the greed for the mighty dollar, not to mention the corruption they both bring.
