A raid Oct. 12 on a Phoenix hashish membership is elevating hackles on each side of the medical marijuana fence and has sparked a media-borne spat between state Attorney General Tom Horne and Allan Sobol, the operator of the busted for-profit 2811 Club.
In dueling information releases, Horne and Sobol flung a number of phrases at one another, seemingly within the warmth of the second.
“The Phoenix Police Department, under orders from the Arizona Attorney General, conducted a raid of the 2811 Club today,” the membership stated in a information launch Wednesday, including that the membership is working inside the tips of the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act.
“2811 Club lied,” reads the hyperlink to a Horne information launch claiming no involvement within the raid. Then the lawyer common – a constant foe of medical marijuana in Arizona – reminds the media that he holds no sway with the Phoenix police and is merely awaiting a judges choice on legality of the golf equipment.
Phoenix police burst into the medical marijuana membership on Wednesday, trashing the place to a point based on a 2811 Club information launch, and confiscating electronics and a small quantity of marijuana. The membership reopened Thursday, regardless of the raid.
Sobol didn’t reply to an e-mail and phone name looking for remark. He had deliberate to open hashish golf equipment in Tucson earlier than Christmas. I’ve my doubts.
