In Los Angeles, mass protesters broke into a marijuana dispensary and ransacked it. One of the dispensary owners, Berner, is facing trouble in his business, but he said that life and justice trumped everything.
Cookies, a famous marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles, was ransacked during a massive protest caused by the killing of George Freud on the weekend. But the creator of the brand, the famous rapper, and marijuana entrepreneur, Bernard, said he was more concerned about the potential injustice that the protesters emphasized than the loss of the current storefront.
A video on Instagram showed that Cookies in Melrose broken in, people broke through the fence, entered the store, and stolen products. The police are driving in the video, but no one seems to arrested.
Berner issued a statement shortly after the incident, stating that he did not condemn those who broke into the store. On the contrary, he believes that human life is more valuable than any business or building.
“It’s extremely unfortunate what happened to our store tonight on Melrose. But as a human living in the world we’re living in today, I cannot expect anything less until justice is served. We can rebuild our store, but you cannot bring someone back to life. “,” Berner said in his video.
“With that being said, we stand with what is going right now in the world. A statement needed to be made. All I say is, I pray everyone stays safe and protects their family in a time like this. How can I worry about a store when there is so much more going on in the world right now? So much hate, so much anger, so much pain, and a lack of justice. Please take care of your families and stay safe. “said the rapper.
Bernard told the six-armed guards at the store not to shoot at the demonstrators. “I don’t want to see anyone die !! I told everyone to stand down. I’m not allowing anyone to die on my watch… all life matters. And money comes and goes…”
A commenter on Instagram suggested that the insurance premiums are generated by the theft would benefit Berner.
But Bernard said that he did not care about it and replied: “We sell weed. I’m not sure that insurance will honor our business, I haven’t even thought about it. I was focused on preserving life and instructing the armed guards to stand down and not to shoot. “
Berner founded Cookies in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2016, and then opened Cookies Haight Street with Shawn Richard. The Cookies is known for its bright blue packaging, and its sales markets include Los Angeles, Santa Ana, San Francisco, and Denver.
Cookies are not the only dispensary looted by protesters, and MedMen in downtown Los Angeles has also robbed.
