The first reported armed robbery of a medical marijuana
distribution center took place at Santa Barbara Hydroponics, 3128
State Street. Owner Jack Poet said he has been robbed three times
before but never reported the earlier robberies because “medical
marijuana is such a controversial issue.” Poet said the robber — in
his thirties, 160 pounds, with red hair and a goatee — walked away
with $30 cash and 15 small display baggies of marijuana.
