Phoenix dealers busted for selling "Medical Marijuana" on Craigslist

Phoenix, AZ- Apparently some original thinkers thought it would be a genius idea to sell their high grade cannabis on Craigslist as "Medical Marijuana" for donations, and they're nothing more then a neighborhood weed dealer.
Craigslist is a great place to sell used appliances and puppies, but some looking to up their clientele are using Craigslist to sell their high quality street marijuana.

The new campaign is being headed by Dennis Bohlke and Robert Clark of Safer Arizona. Bohike as many remember had a similar proposal in 2010 campaigning for adults caught with up to 4 ounces of cannabis to get a far less serious charge with only a $300 fine, but backed down due to the momentum of the medical marijuana initiative.

However now the sights are set higher after witnessing both the success for Arizona's medical marijuana program and the legalization in such states as Colorado.

"The intent of the initiative is to legalize marijuana in Arizona and to treat it as we treat alcohol," said Dennis Bohlke. Continue Reading...
