San Diego medical marijuana dispensary operator Joseph Nunes was sentenced to one year in federal prison on Monday, May 10.
“They took him right to jail,” said a medical marijuana activist who was in the downtown courtroom to support Nunes, reports Shane Finneran at the San Diego Reader.
“Joe, we wont forget you,” said an emotional Donna Lambert after U.S. District Court Judge Larry A. Burns announced Nunes’s sentence.
Police raided two dispensaries operated by Nunes as part of a sweep of pot shops across San Diego in September 2009.
