18 Jul Update: Case Closed
Although it is not clear why the case is closed. You can read the full article from the PI here. Exerpt from Moises Mendoza’s article:
Police officers returned a laptop and patient records they seized from a University District medical marijuana cooperative, but for now they’re holding on to 12 ounces of marijuana and several bongs confiscated during their Tuesday evening search.
Martin Martinez, who heads the Life Vine cooperative at 1406 N.E. 50th St. near University Way Northeast, said he and his lawyer, Douglas Hiatt, picked up the roughly 500 records from the Police Department Thursday.
But it’s not clear if they will get the marijuana back, which advocates say is for use by seriously ill patients.
“We’re really happy right now, but the fight isn’t over,” Martinez said.
