Glen Mowrer III Sentenced to Probation


Glen Mowrer III, whose 2010 arrest was the catalyst for several medical marijuana dispensary prosecutions around Santa Barbara over the last few years, was sentenced to three years of felony probation after he pleaded to possession of concentrated cannabis. Mowrer had been pulled over for not having a front license plate, and more than 20 pounds of cannabis was found in his trunk. It was later determined he had been selling marijuana to several area dispensaries.
