I believe that this is entrapment, but as a person who worked at a dispensary, it is important to have verified that the recommendation is valid before letting someone into the showroom or main part of the dispensary. I know that it seems harsh but maybe if these workers had checked the documentation properly, they wouldn't have had to deal with being arrested. The laws about recommendations are in place to keep people who are not supposed to get it out of the stores. In the eyes of law enforcement, if you let them in with a fake rec you could let anyone in. That is not the message we want to send to law enforcement. Laws about patient access should be taken seriously by dispensaries. I'm not saying these workers deserve jail time, but they don't deserve to sue the narcotics team because they were caught slipping up.

I disagree lindzzz. Don't you think thses narcotics agents could get cards that look identical to the real thing or are from the state and are the real thing without the medical end of it being done. Face it cops and all law enforcement can get what they need from our government if they have a search warrant.
