Manager of marijuana collective facing second drug trial in a year

Jovan Jackson has been cutting men’s hair since he was a teenager. But a few years back, he decided to take a sharp detour from the barber trade and try a different vocation.

A medical marijuana patient himself, he joined with a small group of others to start a marijuana collective called Answerdam Alternative Care. He served as manager. It was a legal venture, he believed, made possible under California law.

But for Jackson, it was a decision that ultimately landed him in court.

For the second time in less than a year, Jackson, 32, is headed to trial on charges of illegally possessing and selling marijuana. The charges stem from a raid at the Kearny Mesa dispensary in September. In December, he was acquitted of similar charges related to an earlier raid on the same property.

Pretrial motions are expected to begin this week in San Diego Superior Court.
