Overview

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

Bonnie Dumanis gets on my nerves big-time. This whole no medical marijuana crusade of hers is shameful. She's spending our money, her time (more money), lots of other people's time ($$$$$)on a self-serving, self righteous personal peeve and ego blow. I don't know how those East County folks manage to keep electing her over and over. And now thanks to a sweet deal those County folks cooked up a couple of years ago, she'll retire and be making ten times her salary for working. Or something like that. She just thinks she is all that. She ain't and those folks out East need to wake up and quit sending her back. But of course that won't happen. So I can look forward to more years of teeth grinding and foul language reactions to Bonnie D. Well, "it's always something" - Rosanne RaDa.

I am a 46 year old woman who has learned about the beneficial effects of marijuana while on chemotherapy. So the police went and fraudulently obtained a medical marijuana card and spent 6 months specifically targeting medical marijuana patients and providers. I have proof of this. I was caught up in the mix of those arrested. Now I am having my life destroyed. At age 46 I have no criminal record and was under the clear impression this was legal under California law. Not supposed to be happening? Well it is happening. To me and many others hear in San Diego. If you are thinking what a waste of taxpayer money this is, I have more. The chemotherapy triggered an autoimmune disease called Sjoegrens, for which I must receive regular medical treatment. And my immune system is so destroyed by this and the Hepatitis C and the chemotherapy, that I get sick very easily. I catch any minor cold that I am exposed to and where others are in bed for 2-3 days, I will be bedridden for a good two weeks. I am very afraid that if I am put in a jail with many other people I could easily catch something and die. I do not mean to be dramatic but I truly do believe I am facing a death sentence by the San Diego Court. I am really frightened that I am medically unable to withstand what I am facing. I hate to risk sounding like I am exaggerating but I am actually very serious. I have chronic pain from a serious car accident, I am into the 4th and final stage of cirrhosis. Will putting me in prison for medical marijuana benefit society in any way? Is it worth the taxpayer money of incarceration and the additional taxpayer money of medical care and a potential liver transplant. Will they be responsible enough to make sure to provide my 3rd skin cancer surgery? Oh yes, I have skin cancer, too. What about if the hepatitis C that triggered my cirrhosis comes back? Will they stay on top of that. Do you, the taxpayer, believe that this is a good use of your taxpayer money? Is the satisfaction these people receive from destroying my life a good exchange for a full time school teacher for one year? I do not believe so. And I really need your help. Honestly, I am extremely scared. If each person reading this who felt at all like what happened to me is not okay, I would so much appreciate you taking the time to call anybody in your local government and tell them about it. All their phone numbers are online. Thank you so much for taking your time if you do. IF YOU DO NOT LIKE YOUR TAXPAYER MONEY WASTED THIS WAY PLEASE CONTACT THE DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE (619-531-4040) AND ASK THEM TO DROP THE CASE AGAINST DONNA LAMBERT
