Roommates arrested for growing, selling marijuana
Police have arrested three roommates for allegedly growing and selling marijuana out of their Iowa City residence.
According to criminal complaints, Iowa City Police Street Crimes officers served a narcotics search warrant at 2151 Keokuk St., No. 14 on Sept. 30. Police identified the occupants as 20-year-old Christopher J. Reasoner, 21-year-old Simon R. Olesen and 18-year-old Taryn M. Stroud.
Police said they obtained the search warrant after purchasing marijuana from Reasoner on Sept. 21 using a cooperating individual. Stroud participated in the sale and also bragged about their marijuana grow operation, police said. The transaction was monitored by Street Crimes detectives.
When officers served the warrant they allegedly found plants being grown and cultivated plants, police said. Police said they also found items used in the manufacturing and selling of marijuana, including grow lights, packaging materials, a digital scale and cash.
At the time the warrant was served, there were other people in the residence using drugs, police said. The roommates admitted to growing and selling marijuana, according to police.
All three roommates were charged with controlled substance violation, Iowa drug tax stamp violation and keeping a drug house. Reasoner and Stroud face an additional count of controlled substance violation and gathering for use of drugs.

Medical marijuana in the work place; get your questions answered
PHOENIX - The Arizona Medical Marijuana Act is bringing up a lot of questions, among them; how will prescription holders be dealt with in the work place?
Wednesday at 10am, Mountain States Employers Council is holding a webinar to help employers better understand the law. The webinar costs $129 and you can still register by firstname.lastname@example.org .
Attorney Dave Smith with Mountain States says they are suggesting employers review their employee handbooks now.
Employers can restrict the usage of medical marijuana at work. They can discipline those who are under the influence. They can also restrict possession of medical marijuana on the work premises.
The question is how they will determine who is under the influence, because testing positive is not an indicator of being “high.”
Employers cannot decide not to hire a person based on the fact that they are a medical marijuana prescription holder. They also cannot fire a person based on their prescribed medical marijuana use.
Smith suggests employees that believe they will get a medical marijuana prescription educate themselves on the law and make sure they carry their medical marijuana card.
Friday the Arizona Department of Health Services will release the preliminary regulations for the Medical Marijuana Act. The rules are scheduled to be finalized by March 29th.
