Feb. 26, 2014

Police in Tempe have made three arrests in connection with what they say is an illegal marijuana dispensary.

Sergeant Mike Pooley says they got a number of calls about a suspicious odor coming from the Delta 9 Dispensary, which he says was operating illegally.

“There saying that they’re giving marijuana in exchange of a donation, however that donation is set at a certain price for each piece of marijuana product,” Pooley said.

He says officers found a large quantity of pot being sold in what was supposed to be a compassion club. He says all three of those arrested have been charged with possession of marijuana for sale, which is a felony, and he says more charges may be coming.
