This blog is dedicated to making the public aware of what happened in operation Green Rx / Endless Summer as well as the continued prosecution of legitimate medical cannabis patients trying to follow the law in San Diego as a result of District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis' thirst for a higher conviction rate and bias towards medical cannabis.

Medical Marijuana Patient Incarcerated at Prelim Hearing
In the Downtown San Diego Courthouse, District Attorney Chris Linbergh suggested a bail of $100,000 on, & resulting in the incarceration of, Defendant Cletus Greathouse. Judge Gale E. Kineshiro would not allow an expert witness to testify on behalf of Greathouse, instead she called him "a man who deals illegals drugs & is a threat to society!"
Testimony among 3 law enforcement officers touched topics of commercialized marijuana packaging, myspace advertising, & business cards for Cletus 'Kron' Greathouse, who they also established co-owned & operated Chronic Care Providers, a medical marijuana collective on Dagget St in San Diego. There was no denial of a grow room, available medicine, or other operational procedures by the defense. In fact, Greathouse promoted & promotes the medical use of marijuana!
However when the defense asked that expert witness Bill Britt be allowed to testify, they were denied claiming they've yet to prove beyond a sufficient measure that Greathouse is a medical marijuana patient. The defense produced a photocopy of his recommendation & the Court responded that the recommendation is unverifiable:The recommending Physician or a Keeper of Records would have to be present.
As the bailiff arrested Greathouse, he cried for mercy. Another couple of bailiffs cleared the room.
Cletus Greathouse will sleep in a jail cell.
