​Three California men Wednesday picked up their medical marijuana from the Red Bluff Police Department, where it had been since being seized in an October raid.

Garret Houchins and Jason Ramey, both 30, and Travis Stock, 31, along with another man, Corey Perkiss, were growing 11 plants at Stock’s home, reports The Redding Record Searchlight.
They were arrested on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale, processing marijuana and conspiracy.

​Last December, all charges were dropped against the men. All three have doctors’ recommendations for medical marijuana.
“To my knowledge this is the first time that we’ve been ordered to release any sort of narcotic back to a citizen,” said Red Bluff Police Sgt. Jason Beeman.
According to Beeman, the police returned the marijuana to comply with a court order.
