CaliforniaDoug Losak, recently appointed as the acting head of Mendocino County's legal department, was pulled over early July 3 and cited for allegedly having a concealed gun and cannabis in his vehicle, according to the Sheriff's Office. Deputies stopped Losak on Highway 101 for allegedly speeding and having a faulty license plate light. The deputies smelled marijuana and searched the vehicle.

The pistol was registered in Losak's name, but he was still in the process of getting a concealed-weapons permit. Losak did not have a doctor's recommendation for the cannabis. He was ordered to appear in court on suspicion of possessing marijuana in a moving vehicle (an infraction) and carrying a concealed weapon (a misdemeanor). Losak hasn't been officially charged, according to the Mendocino County District Attorney's Office. (Ukiah Daily Journal, July 5)
