Redding Police Chief Peter Hansen sent letters to 9 marijuana dispensaries reminding them in no uncertain terms that pot is still illegal under federal law.
The letter comes after the O admin. earlier this year directed US attorneys not to enforce pot ban if they ran counter to State law, a move that triggered a rush of new dispensaries in Shasta Co and Redding.
"The law has not changed because of the whims of the AG and POTUS."
Hansen is quoted in an interview.
This is all paraphrased from this mornings Redding paper.
Shasta Co. and Redding is a very "old school" conservative area, but also supports a very high unemployed, welfare sector due in part to Sac. shipping jail releases up here as a matter of policy.
Robberies and actual home invasions have climbed dramatically recently, as they have elsewhere. It is good to see the local constables are still on our side.
