CITY OF SHASTA LAKE, Calif. – The owners of a City of Shasta Lake veterans’ facility are suing the county over raiding their marijuana grow without a proper warrant.
Blue Mobley has been vocal about the raids that started in 2015. That was about the same time Medicine for our Military tried to grow marijuana for veterans with prescriptions.
He said the Marijuana Eradication Team has raided their grow three times between 2015 and 2016 without official warrants and cut down 99 boxes of marijuana plants.
“They had no paperwork, no warrants, no one was even issued a business card, or any kind of fines whatsoever. They handcuffed everybody, veterans alike, face down in the dirt for two hours while they loaded their vehicles,” Mobley said.
He said marijuana is not distributed at the facility, rather veterans pick it up at the collective Queen of Dragons. They will be in court next month.
Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko did not want to comment, but Shasta County ordinance does not permit any outdoor marijuana grows.
