County should pay for the pot 

Daly City

 San Luis Obispo should save the taxpayers some money and just pay Kimberley Marshall for the medical marijuana the Sheriff’s Department seized and destroyed without any concern for her status under Proposition 215 (“Patient files claim for confiscated pot,” Jan. 14). The deputies may hate Proposition 215, but their dislike will not carry an iota of force when this case goes to court.  Their opinion that this lawsuit is a “stunt” could be very costly. In very short order, the San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Department will be found liable for destroying Kimberley Marshall’s medicine and will be forced to pay top market price to replace it.

 County officials should instruct law enforcement officers that Proposition 215 and  SB 420 are now the law in California and must be obeyed—even by a Sheriff’s Department used to making its own rules when it comes to marijuana.

What should the San Simeon CSD do to continue its obligations?

  • Divest—they can't pay for water and wastewater responsibilities.
  • Dissolve—they can't properly handle what a governing body should.
  • Focus on getting grants and raising rates to pay for their capital projects.
  • I didn't even know San Simeon had a government.
