California, particularly Southern California, is a hot spot for
drug importation and
trafficking. International and interstate drug import and export leads to an increase
in drug crime altogether, thus both State and Federal law enforcement
agencies vigorously prosecute
Kendall Craig Farris is a well known anti drug advocate who has created
drug treatment programs and written books on the subject has ironically
been arrested and charged in a drug case. Farris, the founder and head
of the Over the Wall Foundation in Marina del Rey and author of the book
"Drugs, Kids and Crime: Surviving Our Drug Obsessed Culture,"
was arrested at a Starbucks after an undercover Redondo Beach officer
sold methamphetamine and ecstasy.
According to police reports, Farris arrived at the coffeehouse in a taxi
and an undercover officer gave him an envelope containing $480 in exchange
for the methamphetamine and ecstasy. Farris was subsequently arrested.
The pills turned out to be fake, but Farris was arraigned Friday on charges
of selling a substance that he alleged was drugs.
He is being held on $106,500 bail.
