  • believed they took an assault rifle
    does the victim have so many he does not know or is that person prohibited and didnt want to say if he actually had one

    • Clearlake fool, I is actually a felony to have any firearme if your in possession of more then an ounce or if your growing on the property were a gun is located. Having a 215 also technically make it illegal to own a gun, but is usually not enforced in less you get busted for something else.

    • Can’t have cannabis & firearms at the same location without having a problem with law enforcement

  • Well here is a lsson for the 215 grower “dont sell or brag about your weed” if you do its your own damn fault!

    • Stupid is, stupid does. Not a very well thought out plan.
      Learn by your mistakes and grow up and follow the rules. The rest of us do, so what made this guy think he was special? Not!

  • Ya ur right!! Or pull thousands of dollars out of their pocket to pay at the grocery store. Duh.
    The security culture amongst folks here lately is pretty appalling. Learn some outlaw guidelines and stay outta jail. You haters can hate but outlaws have kept this county going since the days of prohibition and the stunning moonshine industry in the emerald counties.

  • Hey- if this idiot had an assault rifle with their grow in town then I think the police should arrest him and he should be prosecuted for the gun charge. I have no problem w/ legitimate patients growing medicine but really people-c’mon already w/ letting the bullshit lies turn our neighborhoods into crime-infested ghettoes. Again- I don’t even hate on weed but can’t we see what we’ve allowed to happen?
