Natural Healing Center founder Helios Dayspring has pleaded guilty to bribery and filing a false income tax return.

The cannabis business owner appeared in federal court by video on Friday, Oct. 22.

He was initially charged in federal court in July after reportedly admitting to bribing late San Luis Obispo County District 3 Supervisor Adam Hill, attempting to bribe former Grover Beach Mayor John Shoals, and failing to report millions of dollars in income to the IRS.

Dayspring is scheduled to be sentenced on February 11, 2022.

He faces a maximum sentence of 13 years in prison, three years probation, and a $500,000 fine. Plus, he could be ordered to pay nearly $3.5 million in restitution to the IRS.

According to court documents, between 2016 and 2019, Dayspring paid Hill $29,000 in cash, gave him cannabis products, and paid for multiple meals with the understanding that Hill would vote and advocate for cannabis legislation beneficial to Dayspring’s cannabis farms.

San Luis Obispo County officials said a review of cannabis legislation and land use permits after the charges against Dayspring were announced found two questionable decisions that could be linked to the bribery of Hill.

Officials say one of those was a vote that ultimately benefited Dayspring

ALBANY — On Tuesday, several of New York’s medical cannabis dispensaries began selling smokable “whole flower,” the bud of the cannabis plant, for the first time since the Compassionate Care Act passed in 2014 to legalize marijuana for certain medical uses. 

“I’m just happy it’s finally happening. I didn’t think I would see the day,” said Ryan, a 20-year-old patient from Albany who was one of the first local buyers of whole flower at the capital’s Verilife dispensary. He asked to only be identified by his first name.

Saul Stanley was also at the front of the line at Verilife after the product hit the shelves around 3 p.m. He headed in right after reading an email announcement from the dispensary, which he’s been frequenting since it opened in 2016. 

Cannabis helps Stanley manage his dystonia, a condition that can cause muscle pain, weakness and involuntary movements. 

“I normally got the flower, but it was ground up,” Stanley said. “With whole flower, you can conserve it more.”

DANVILLE — Mayor Rickey Williams Jr. said a number of people have come to the Danville City Council in recent months about not being able to park their recreational vehicles on their own properties.

In May, the city council heard a resident request the city look at a permit or other options for persons to keep a recreational vehicle in their driveway during the summer months if they don’t have a side or back yard big enough to put it, which is allowed in certain circumstances under city code requirements.

Then in July, a resident inquired about allowing RVs on residential properties and treating RV owners the same as boat owners.

Williams said he thinks that would only be fair to allow residents to park vehicles they own in their own driveways, under some restrictions.

The city council’s Public Services Committee Tuesday night voted 5-1, with one vacancy and Ward 2 Alderman Rick Strebing voting against it, to amend the city’s zoning code to allow RVs, campers and watercraft anywhere on a resident’s driveway as long as it doesn’t reach out in the public’s right-of-way or obstruct their neighbor’s view. Other requirements include, it has to be: properly licensed, in operational order, in
