    SANTA CLARA COUNTY, Calif. -- Law enforcement agents in Santa Clara County conducted a sting operation of medical marijuana delivery services Thursday by using non patients without a proper prescription as bait.

    The investigation resulted in the arrest of 22 people and the seizure of 223 marijuana plant and nine firearms.

    "This was just plain old drug dealing. Those arrested have perverted the important role of a caregiver for seriously ill patients for their own financial gain,” said Santa Clara Police Chief Stephen Lodge.

    Police said the investigation also revealed that several delivery services followed the law and refused to deliver to non-patients. Courts have defined a "primary caregiver" as a person who consistently assumes the responsibility for the housing, health or safety of a medical marijuana patient, police said.

    The California Supreme Court has ruled that a "primary caregiver" is not just a person who solely supplies or sells marijuana to a patient.

    “I believe this is just the tip of the iceberg of people who are hiding behind the voter approved concept of medicinal marijuana to sell illegal drugs on an unprecedented scale,” said Lodge.

    Without anyone protecting the current laws there would be chaos. These delivery services were clearly working outside of the law, which undermines the whole medical marijuana movement. It is unfortunate, for the offenders, the timing of this sting operation, which I believe is no coincidence due to the upcoming ballot on Proposition 19 right around the corner.

    as godztear says, without those laws, prop 215 would not have enjoyed the somewhat freedom it does. granted, if the cops were really brave men and women(as many cops are) they would have went after the crack and smack dealers...oh, wait, most of them are better armed than the cops...better fuck with the cannabis folks, probably too stoned to put up much of a fight....
