Jacob Pena, who waited in line outside Caliva for an hour to buy medical marijuana, said he had no idea about the order’s restriction and was turned away.
“I’m upset about it, I’m upset about it,” Pena said. “They said I need a medical card, I didn’t bring it, I’ve been coming here without a medical card for five years.”
Caliva’s delivery orders are so overwhelmed that O’Malley said they can’t offer same-day service, which he said hurts consumers who need it as soon as possible.
“Consumers in Santa Clara county have not needed that for three years,” he said. “Their questions are, ‘How do I get a card if the state systems are shut down’ and they don’t want to overwhelm the doctors’ offices to go get a recommendation.”
“So while the county has said delivery is an option the reality is most dispensaries are not able to deliver,” O’Malley said.
It’s legal to use pot in California, but it’s not legal to grow it on public land, park or on somebody’s private property without them knowing about it.
Generally, law enforcement says these illegal grows are the work of a crime cartel.
“They’re using somebody else’s water, doing damage to the environment, leaving a mess, and it’s not the legal kind of grow,” said Laurie Smith of the Sheriff’s Department.
