I for one am a card holding medicinal user and I would absolutely sue, there is a lot of paperwork on both parts to designate a grow site, so there is definitely a paper trail that Gamboa can use, all he has to do is prove he didnt get his plants, which shouldnt be hard.

I honestly dont think he can, or should sue for "street value" though, he does not operate a dispensary and therefore can NOT sell his grown medicine, he could maybe get away with whatever he paid for the seeds or clones, and time invested into growing the plants, which if you want good stuff is pretty time consuming and takes some skill, but it was only 6 plants, not a big crop, I myself grow 28 at a time. If I was the judge I would give him $1000 a plant, plus have lindland cover the court costs and lawyer fees

I doubt we'll see him running for office as a republican any time soon. Perhaps it's time to switch to the green party.

Wow 6 plants really have a 120 gr street value? Is there any truth to that? (i've got 100 acres with sexy top soil HA im just throwin that out there lol) the town I live in is small and everytime the task force finds pot plants they destroy them in an incenerator in the middle of town (it's a good day for all)and i have seen them throw 30 tall plants in there at once and if 6 plants are 120gr that wud make 30 half a mil and I just cant believe that amount or that someone wud destroy something worth that much regardless if they are law enforcment or not. Lindland prolly thought he could make a quick buck and without much evidence left behind he could argue the other guy had already harvested his crop. However Linland doesn't strike me as one to enjoy the cherry of a left handed cigarett

6 plants is going to be about 3000 dollars give or take a G.

The guy should be suing for Emotional Distress, and then the judge would be willing to give him an obscene amount of money so that the defendant(lindland) has incentive to never do it again.

But street value of 120G? You don't even need a nose to smell thats bullshit.

Lindland must need the weed to relieve the pain he still must be feeling after getting KTFO by Lawler

He did it because his name is Matt "The Law" Lindland...and he was taking The Law into his own hands.... just trying to be a good citizen

I just actually read the article..

The guy is suing Lindland for like $122k..the estimate street value of the plants. Now I love MJ as much as the next guy and I'm for medical mary j.... but suing for the "street value"...doesnt that kind of discredit the legality and moral/ethics behind "medical mary j" ?
