Nevada: Arrests Disrupt Medical Marijuana Convention In Las Vegas
(Hemp News)
Las Vegas police and federal drug agents brought in dogs and a SWAT vehicle, occupied the roof, arrested 10 people and seized marijuana and psilocybin over the weekend at Hempcon, a marijuana education convention at the Cashman Center.
Attendees described seeing police dogs around the event, as well as officers on the roof of the building, apparently trying to find people smoking marijuana, reports Eric Hartley at the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Event organizers were outraged by the heavy-handed arrests, and some attendees said patients were left frightened as Nevada’s first legal medicinal cannabis dispensaries prepare to open.
“It’s disheartening for our whole community,” said Jennifer Solis of the Wellness Education Cannabis Advocates of Nevada (WECAN), who attended the event.
Officers shut down five booths from Friday to Sunday, arrested 10 people and cited three others on charges of drug possession, possession with intent to sell and transporting a controlled substance, according to Officer Laura Meltzer, a Las Vegas Metro Police Department spokeswoman. Meltzer claimed officers had seized marijuana, hashish, cannabis seeds, edible products containing THC, and even some psilocybin mushrooms.
