Two medical marijuana employees charged with smuggling cannabis oil
Two former employees of Otsego-based Minnesota Medical Solutions have been accused of smuggling concentrated marijuana oil from Minnesota to an out-of-state facility, a spokesperson for the Wright County Attorney’s Office confirmed.
Dr. Laura L. Bultman, a 41-year-old resident of Apple Valley, and Ronald D. Owens, a 45-year-old resident of Otsego, Minn., allegedly smuggled more than a half-million dollars worth of marijuana oil from the state to a medical marijuana dispensary in New York. In addition, they altered records to disguise the transaction.
Officials charged both suspects with two felony counts of intentionally diverting the drug to a “person” other than allowed by the law. The charges have been filed with the Wright County District Court. Charges against a third employee are pending.
Dr. Bultman’s attorney, Paul Engh, defended his client. He said he would ask officials to dismiss the charges, and if that wasn’t successful, he would battle the legal action on all fronts.
Defending his client, Engh said, “Dr. Bultman has a long history of care to the patients of Minnesota. The charges are unfounded on the facts and untenable under the law … charges are a career-ending allegation against him.”
Both Bultman and Owens are scheduled to make their first appearance in the Wright County District Court on Feb. 28, 2017.
