Calif. Pot Dispensary Chief Convicted On Drug Charges

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Federal prosecutors in Southern California say a medical marijuana dispensary president has been convicted on several drug-related charges.

In a release Friday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Bruce Riordan says 41-year-old Aaron Sandusky, the president of G3 Holistics, Inc., was convicted of conspiracy to manufacture marijuana plants, possession with intent to distribute and other charges.

Sandusky, of Rancho Cucamonga, faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison when he is due for sentencing Jan. 7, 2013.

A mistrial was declared on four charges accusing Sandusky of maintaining a drug involved premises at G3’s stores in Upland, Colton and Moreno Valley.

Sandusky and five others were arrested in June for their roles in a trio of Southern California medical marijuana dispensaries ordered to be shut down by the government last year.
