The country’s efforts to crackdown on medical marijuana have landed one dispensary owner in the hot seat. The owner of a medical marijuana dispensary, is facing criminal charges for the illegal sale of marijuana and money laundering.
He is accused of passing out flyers advertising the dispensary near a high school. Since then, some of the students at the school have purchased marijuana from the dispensary. No details have been released about the money laundering charges.
A new ordinance was signed that prohibits dispensaries from opening within a certain distance of schools or any other location that children frequent. It’s not clear whether the dispensary is located near a school or if he just went to the school to pass out the flyers.

However, the country has been cracking down on medical marijuana dispensaries, and the ordinance signed limits the number of dispensaries that are allowed to operate within a certain radius.
He faces 24 criminal counts. His bail was set at $350,000.
