Looks like the crackdowns continues as another collective has been raided in Murrieta.

Federal agents searched a medical marijuana collective near Murrieta on Wednesday as part of an ongoing crackdown on such facilities and two people were arrested, authorities said.
 
Agents searched the Disabled American Veterans Collective, which occupies several suites in a business complex at 38372 Innovation Court in French Valley, said U.S. attorney’s office spokesman Thom Mrozek. They also searched the Temecula home of the collective’s owner, Kevin O. Freeman.
 
Jail records show Freeman, 38, and Shelly Lee Walker, 28, of Murrieta, were arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana for sale at the Innovation Court address by Riverside County sheriff’s investigators. They were booked into the Southwest Detention Center.

Blue Ivy Strain Marijuana Sprouting Up In LA Weed Shops

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Mon, January, 16th 2012 by THCFinder
We knew Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby Blue Ivy was going to be influential, but this just isn’t what we expected.
 
The week-old child is already racing up the Billboard charts with her cries audible on her dad’s song “Glory,” and she already has her own strain of marijuana named after her, reports TMZ.
 
According to the website, several weed dispensaries in Los Angeles are selling a new strain of pot called “OG Blue Ivy.” Of course, Beyonce and Jay-Z didn’t sign off on the new strain, but they don’t have a trademark on their daughter’s name and so far the stores haven’t received any sort of legal notice from the couple.

Feds crack down on CO medical pot dispensaries

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Fri, January, 13th 2012 by THCFinder
U.S. prosecutors in Colorado started a crackdown against nearly two dozen medical marijuana dispensaries located within 1,000 feet of schools, giving the proprietors 45 days to cease operations or face civil and criminal penalties.
 
U.S. Attorney John Walsh issued the ultimatum in letters to 23 dispensaries and landlords he said were in violation of federal and state law, a statement Thursday from the U.S. Justice Department said.
 
The move makes Colorado the latest battleground pitting federal prosecutors against storefront distributors of marijuana in states that have decriminalized marijuana for medical purposes.
 
"When the voters of Colorado passed the limited medical marijuana amendment in 2000, they could not have anticipated that their vote would be used to justify large marijuana stores located within blocks of our schools," Walsh said.

Brewer lifts hold on medical pot dispensaries process in AZ

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Fri, January, 13th 2012 by THCFinder
Gov. Jan Brewer said Friday she will begin processing applications for medical marijuana dispensaries.
 
In a released statement, the governor said she will drop her federal lawsuit seeking clarification on the conflict between federal drug laws and the state's voter-approved medical pot law.
 
But Brewer said she will not issue dispensary licenses until other legal challenges are resolved.
 
Several lawsuits are pending in Maricopa County Superior Court seeking to force Brewer to allow dispensaries. She put the process on hold in June just days before it was to begin, saying she needed assurance from federal officials that state employees would not be prosecuted.
 
"Know this: I won't hesitate to halt state involvement in the (medical marijuana act) if I receive indication that state employees face prosecution due to their duties in administering the law," Brewer said in a statement.
 
Brewer said she still wants that assurance and sent a letter to the acting U.S. attorney for Arizona, Ann Scheel.
 
"If there are certain actions state employees should avoid or specific licensing and regulatory activities that concern the Department of Justice, I ask that you communicate those concerns to me immediately," she wrote.

Another sad day for the medical marijuana industry and it's patients who count on medical marijuana to get by day to day with their ailements.
 
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The DEA has raided three San Diego medical marijuana clinics for violating federal law.
 
Warrants were served at two collectives on University Avenue, and one on Garnet in Pacific Beach. The federal government informed the three clinics they had 45 days to either shut down or face criminal charges.
 
Supporters of medical marijuana protested outside the Golden West clinic in North Park as federal agents confiscated marijuana and related equipment.

At least one person was arrested.
