MURRIETA: Authorities raid medical marijuana collective

Federal drug enforcement agents served a second search warrant on Greenhouse Cannabis Club this morning, two days after the club filed a $3 million lawsuit against Murrieta alleging invasion of patient privacy.
Fewer than a dozen agents, including some Murrieta Police officers, entered the Jefferson Avenue collective. At least one officer had an assault riffle. Authorities handcuffed two collective volunteers and one patient.
Collective director Eric McNeil, who arrived on the scene moments before agents left, said that agents seized less than a pound of marijuana and “fake edibles,” which did not contain marijuana.
Agents at the scene declined to comment.
The lawsuit filed Tuesday against the city, in part, challenges practices by local law enforcement officers of following patients as they leave the collective, pulling patients over and questioning their use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. Those practices were detailed in a first federal search warrant served on the collective in mid-March.
