Illegal pot deal turns violent after price squabble 

A pot buyer was beaten up for disputing the cost of the marijuana he illegally tried to purchase in the Upper Haight on Tuesday, police said.

The 33-year-old man was hospitalized after the deal went up in smoke near Alvord Lake in Golden Gate Park around 2:30 p.m.

The female dealer’s “cohorts” attacked and beat up the buyer, police said.

Police responded and searched the area, arresting a 49-year-old man for the assault, police said.

The would-be buyer was treated for his injuries at the hospital, police said.
