Plants? We Don’t Need No Steenken Plants!
In yet another embarrassing fiasco for the hapless San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department, it is about to buy 43 dead marijuana plants for $25,000.
Rather than go to trial in federal court and fight a civil rights lawsuit brought by Los Osos, California resident Richard Steenken, the county and Sheriff’s Department agreed to settle the case by paying up, reports Colin Rigley at the San Luis Obispo New Times.
The monetary amount is said to be roughly the cash value of the cannabis plants, which were seized in a botched pot raid on Steenken, a medical marijuana patient.
