Phoenix police have shut down another illegally operating “compassion club” that was masquerading as a state-licensed medical marijuana.
The Green Thumb Academy was illegally dispensing marijuana to medical marijuana patients (and possibly to non-patients as well). The business was operating in central Phoenix for about one year. The Phoenix police got a tip in February that the establishment was operating illegally.
“When the marked police cars escorting the detectives arrived, several people who were ‘volunteering’ at the business attempted to leave, but were apprehended,” said Sgt. Thompson, a Phoenix police spokesman.
Detectives seized about 7 pounds of marijuana and $1,000. Charges are pending and the investigation is ongoing.
