Another Cannabis Bust at the Foot of Newport in Ocean Beach

It has happened again. Back on October 7, there was a bust of a cannabis canopy at the foot of Newport Ave. where OB’s “outlaw” weed salesman was detained by police and his products taken.

Just yesterday, October 16, two gentlemen were detained by San Diego police for sales of cannabis products under a canopy right there on the sidewalk across from the Wall.

Their products were confiscated and the two were handcuffed and at least detained. It’s unclear if they were arrested and taken either downtown to the jail or over to Western Division HQ. (Even being detained with cuffs is a type of arrest, yes.)

I spoke to SDPD Sgt Myers who confirmed the products for sale were cannabis. She said they’d received a lot of complaints about the open sales of weed. And several undercover officers were involved in the bust.

A witness told me that the men detained had claimed their open sales were legal and they had “paperwork” to show they were allowed to do what they were doing. I asked Sgt. Myers about this and she responded that the City is not going to allow these types of open sales on the sidewalk.

All the more reason to run all of those clowns, down around the sea wall, out of town. There is nothing wholesome happening down there.

“Wholesome” is in the eye of the beholder. There are plenty of benign products being sold, however, all the vendors may soon have to answer to the city’s new policies on sidewalk vendors fairly soon.
