Feds Raid 2 West Hollywood Medical Marijuana Clinics

WEST HOLLYWOOD (AP) — The Los Angeles Times reports federal drug enforcement agents have raided two West Hollywood medical marijuana dispensaries and taken one person into custody.

Drug Enforcement Administration spokeswoman Sarah Pullen says the raids at Alternative Herbal Health Services and Zen Healing began at around 2 p.m. Tuesday in conjunction with the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. She would not say what led to the raids or what was seized, but she confirmed that federal agents had one person in custody.

The targeted dispensaries are among four that the city of West Hollywood has authorized to operate. West Hollywood was one of the first California cities to regulate medical marijuana sales.

    Thanks Obama. He specifically stated that no more marijuana raids would be conducted in the state of california by the DEA. I can’t believe I voted for the idiot.

    Guys, relax….

    Despite 21 USC 863 Bongs are now fully legal at the Federal Level. Marijuana and lots of other drugs are soon to follow. The Gov’t just can’t afford to case us anymore. 🙂

    Case No. C 08-02533-PJH is the precedent.
