Endless Summer Raids..entrapment?
Background: District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis and other officials announced Feb. 10 that an undercover drug sting had netted 33 suspects deemed a public safety threat to military families
What's happening: A review of court records and interviews with defendants suggest at least 14 are medical-marijuana patients with no military connection, and that most defendants ONLY WENT TO A MILITARY ENCLAVE BECAUSE THEY WERE DIRECTED THERE BY UNDERCOVER DRUG AGENTS.
The undercover agent “presented himself as a legitimate patient,” said Lambert, who faces up to four years in prison if convicted. “Yes, he was verified. And yes, he had the appropriate paperwork.” Donna Lambert
