DEA Raids a Cannabis Dispensary

A week after the Attorney General defended state-sanctioned medical marijuana, federal agents raid a cannabis collective in San Francisco.

Angry protestors filled the street outside Emmalyn's California Cannabis Clinic in San Francisco on Wednesday, chanting “DEA: Go Away” and asking agents why they were raiding a medical marijuana dispensary less than a week after the US Attorney General claimed the federal government would no longer target patients and providers in compliance with state law.

DEA officials responded by indicating that the facility was in fact in violation of California state law, but provided no details to support this claim, which the dispensary owners disputed.
