Thug cops ordered to return $100,000 seized from medical marijuana distributor, family

San Diego County’s buffoon of a District Attorney, Bonnie Dumanis, has been ordered to return more than $100,000 seized from a medical marijuana businessman and his family, 15 months after drug agents raided the company and didn’t charge anyone with a crime.

Superior Court Judge Tamila E. Ipema issued the order late Friday, almost six weeks after lawyers representing James Slatic argued that the money must be returned.

“Investigations have been ongoing since January 2016 and there is no indication … that criminal charges are going to be filed in this case in the near future,” the judge wrote.

The feckless Dumanis has used state and federal civil asset-forfeiture rules for years to confiscate millions of dollars from drug suspects…and apparently from legitimate marijuana dispensaries.
