Mendo Cracks Down on Trimmers as Well as Growers
On Wednesday, 9 marijuana manicurists arrested just north of Ukiah last month were arraigned on charges of cultivation and possession. According to the Ukiah Daily Journal,
All of the defendants were either sitting at, or within three feet of, tables set up inside the building where marijuana was sitting along with garden clippers and other items used for trimming, according to testimony from MCSO deputy Jacquelyn Rainwater.
The materials on the tables included gardening clippers, gloves, containers and alcohol, which Rainwater said is typically used to remove the sticky resin marijuana bud leaves on bare hands and on clippers.
This is the first time I’ve heard of trimmers facing charges. Does anyone know of any earlier cases?
