California Pot Grower Shot After Argument

A 26-year-old male in Porterville, California was shot in the chest area Tuesday after an disagreement about the cannabis that he was gardening in his back garden, the Tulare County Sheriff's Office stated.

Deputies reacted to a call up about a shooting about 12:30 p.m. in the 200 block of East Lincoln Street, a non-urban address to the south of Porterville Junior College. They arrived fairly quickly.

Based on the department's statement, the guy reported another person approached him and the two quarreled. The shooter blasted the victim in the upper body, then ran away from the property. The motive of this shooting is currently under investigation and the shooter is still at large at the time of this writing.

The wounded male was taken to a nearby hospital in which he was in stable condition. The unwilling recipient had a medical cannabis card, but the pot was currently being cultivated out of conformity with the county law.

It is not clear at this time how he was outside of the county ordinance.
