The San Luis Obispo County Narcotics Task Force arrested eight people on drug charges at a 420 festival. Central Coast News reports that the festival took place at the Pozo Saloon in Santa Margarita. The eight individuals arrested are all in their 20s and face a litany of drug charges from possession of drugs to sale. Some have been arrested and charged with selling a controlled substance. Others were charged with possession for sale of a controlled substance. All eight were charged with Health and Safety Code Section 11352. This safety code involves the possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
