VENTURA — While California may be on the leading edge of the so-called “marijuana revolution” making its way across the country, there are very clear restrictions issued by the California Attorney General’s office as to the permissible use, transport, possession, cultivation, and sale of marijuana and its derivative products.

Perhaps it was the ubiquitous media hoopla throughout the state about “420-friendly” backyard cultivation and the misdemeanor status now assigned to various infractions associated with the use of marijuana that led 26-year-old Ventura resident Adolfo Gonzalez astray down the path that saw him arrested in the early morning hours of April 15th on a variety of drug and weapons charges.

Or perhaps it was Gonzalez’s brazen disregard of the laws against street corner sales of controlled substances that got him busted and hauled off to Ventura County Jail in the early morning hours of April 15th, where he was charged with possession of cocaine for sale, illegal marijuana cultivation, manufacturing concentrated cannabis, being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm, unlawful firearm transfer, and unlawful possession of ammunition.

According to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sr. Deputy Jason Christmann, it was during “a directed enforcement” conducted by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Gang Unit that Gonzalez was spotted making “several hand-to-hand narcotics transactions” in downtown Ventura.

A search warrant for his residence followed soon thereafter, with the ensuing search discovering “196 grams of cocaine, 1173 grams of marijuana, 15 mature marijuana plants, a .45 semi-automatic handgun and ammunition, $4,300 in U.S. currency and evidence of a Butane Honey Oil laboratory.”

Gonzalez was arrested immediately following the search of his residence and transported to Ventura County Jail where he is held on $250,000 bail.
