San Diego Medical Marijuana Deliveries Prosecuted as “Sales”

The young man told cops “he was going to make four or five more deliveries that evening.” He obligingly showed officers where to find the 15 gram bag of marijuana and THC-infused candies and one rolled cigarette that were located in his car.

Taylor Patrick Jensen said he was part of a “collective” called “Higher Elevation” and that he delivered marijuana to “patients,” according to Carlsbad police sergeant Matthew Lowe, who testified in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse today.

Carlsbad peace officers interrupted Jensen’s deliveries about 6 p.m. on a Tuesday evening, June 12, after a citizen reported witnessing suspected drug sales from a vehicle.

Testimony this afternoon suggested that Taylor Patrick Jensen, 22, and his mother Kristin Jensen, 43, operate a medical marijuana dispensary from their home in Carlsbad; it is named “Higher Elevation” and is said to be a non-profit corporation which delivers marijuana.
