Police recovered more than $900 worth of counterfeit cash while investigating a medical marijuana robbery in [Mount Baker] last week.
A medical marijuana provider called police around 5:45 pm on June 24th, and said he’d just been ripped off during a sale.
The victim told officers he is “involved in dispensing medical Marijuana to unprivileged patients,” and buys weed from dispensaries so he can give “portions of that marijuana to people who can’t afford it,” apparently for a smaller fee. More.
