Pot clinic owner pleads guilty to fed charge

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The ex-owner of a medical marijuana dispensary in San Diego County has pleaded guilty to a federal drug charge.

James Stacy entered the plea Tuesday to a charge of manufacturing pot.

The North County Times says under the plea deal, eight other charges will be dropped and prosecutors will recommend that Stacy be sentenced to three years of probation.

Stacy ran a now-defunct medical marijuana store in Vista. It was one of 14 in the county that local and federal authorities raided last year.

Thirty people were arrested in the raids but local prosecutors charged only one person and federal prosecutors charged two.
