Update on Volkswagen Diesel Fraud Case

We filed an action in Butte County on May 17, 2018 with the intent of having a jury decide punitive damages. We would be the first party to bring the defeat device case to jury trial.  Peer reviewed studies proved thousands of people with lung diseases died from the fraud.  


Economically Depressed Cities Turning to Cannabis

Posted by Lacy Fletcher on Friday, April 15, 2016 Under: Commercial Cannabis
Adelanto, California is a dusty desert town just west of Interstate 15. Since the 1992 closure of George Air Force Base (once the area’s main employer), the town has struggled mightily to find a steady source of income.

There was an expensive but failed attempt to build an international passenger airport on the shuttered base. A Chinese-backed venture called Da Zhong Hua Wholesale Town broke ground but faltered. Even the local minor league baseball team turned into a costly burden.

The only industry Adelanto has been able to sustain is incarceration. The city of roughly 31,000 people is now home to three prisons with a total of 3,340 beds. In November 2014, the city council approved construction of a fourth facility, adding another 3,264 beds.

But Adelanto has found a new source of income that could prove far more profitable than prison ever was: legal pot.

Cannabis is at a major crossroads in California, where medical marijuana has been legal since 1996. The state’s marijuana sales—valued at $2.7 billion last year—already account for half the nation’s legal retail weed purchases.

A ballot initiative this November proposes to regulate legal retail sale of recreational marijuana, similar to the laws adopted in Colorado and Washington. If it passes (and it’s expected to), anticipated sales would dwarf even Colorado’s $1 billion legal weed market.
