Dennis Peron, Pot Guru, Arraigned on Child Porn, Drug Charges

Dennis Peron, the author of the medical marijuana-creating Proposition 215 and a revered figure in the cannabis community, was arraigned today in San Francisco on drug and child porn charges.

The charges stem from a police raid on Peron's “Castro Castle” in August. The “matter depicting a minor engaging or simulating sexual conduct” was allegedly gleaned from a computer on site, according to folks at the Castle when SF Weekly called.

Peron is also accused of possession of methamphetamine for sale; possession of ecstasy; possession of marijuana (surprise); and opening or maintaining a place for the purpose of selling or using any controlled substance. Bail has been set at $200,000; folks at the Castle expect Peron to return home in the next day or so.
