Re "Probable cause?" (Newslines, by Meredith J. Cooper, Dec. 2):

I don't use [marijuana], I never have, don't think I ever will, but I 
am amazed at the tactics used here. They are trying to build a case 
based on "clerical errors" more than anything. Those things could 
happen in your everyday pharmacy if someone accidentally skips a step 
in the process.

It sounds to me like the issue is possibly inadequate training for a 
job that should be handled with the same protocols as your everyday 
pharmacy, but I can't think, with the exception of CPC selling with 
no script whatsoever, that any of these operations are guilty of 
anything other than negligence, and that's a person-to-person issue, 
not a problem worthy of shutting down the whole operation.

The dispensaries just need to make sure they have properly trained 
their employees and watch their backs. How [District Attorney Mike] 
Ramsey connected Dylan [Tellesen] to CPC when he had written info in 
his possession that clearly stated that there was no connection 
before this even started is amazing.
