Pot dispensary robbed by men wielding an Uzi

Violent pothead robbers held up a Richmond district marijuana club with an uzi and handgun Friday, police said.

The thugs fled with cash and heaps of buds but did not “smoke” anyone at the dispensary in the 4800 block of Geary Boulevard, police said. Employees at the Hemp Center located on that block deny being robbed.

According to the police report, the dispensary was robbed at around 6:35 p.m. The suspects, described only as two black males, whipped out their guns and demanded the green, police said.

A 53-year-old woman and 30-year-old man who work at the dispensary complied, police said. Cops did not say how much money and pot were taken.

The employees were not injured during the heist, police said.

There have been no arrests.
