Legislators To Feds: Stop Attacking Marijuana Dispensaries

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Wed, October, 19th 2011 by THCFinder
Two California lawmakers on Wednesday joined medical marijuana patients, dispensary operators and advocates to call for an immediate end to the federal government's broad crackdown on dispensaries.
Earlier this month, federal prosecutors announced plans for sweeping criminal prosecutions against medical marijuana dispensaries across California, threatening landlords with eviction, property seizures and even imprisonment.
"I urge the federal government to stand down in its massive attack on medical marijuana dispensaries, which will have devastating impacts for the state of California," said Senator Mark Leno (D-San Francisco). "At a time when resources are precious and few, federal officials have chosen to waste time and money in an ambush that will harm countless patients who will no longer be able to safely access doctor-recommended treatments."

Sacremento continues to be harasses by federal agents coming in guns blazing shutting down dispensaries in the area.

SACRAMENTO, CA - Two marijuana dispensaries in Sacramento and Stockton have become the first in the valley to be forcibly shut down as part of a federal crackdown on California pot shops.
The Medizen Cooperative at 2201 Northgate Blvd. in Sacramento and the Central Valley Caregivers Cooperative at 3260 Tomahawk Drive in Stockton were raided by DEA agents on Monday.
"Full gear. Machine-type guns, not handguns," recalled Charlie White, who works for a neighboring business in the same Stockton industrial complex and watched drug agents swarm Central Valley Caregivers.

Colorado medical marijuana dispensaries are getting a boost in political clout after they joined the United Food and Commercial Workers Union.
The U.S. Justice Department has warned that marijuana dispensaries and licensed growers in states with medical marijuana laws could face prosecution for violating federal drug and money-laundering laws, which union members are vowing to fight.
Daniel J. Rush, a national marijuana dispensary organizer for the union, said dispensary owners are at war with the U.S. Justice Department in California over the issue, and he believes the unions can help them.
"They declared war on us, we didn't declare war on them," Rush said.
Dispensaries in Michigan, California, and Washington state also are seeking union backing.

More dispensaries are being shut down by the Federal government keeping good on their promise to start cracking down on dispensaries to leave medical marijuana patients hanging high and dry without their medication.

SACRAMENTO, CA - Another week, another shutdown. Medizen medical marijuana dispensary on Northgate Boulevard in Sacramento was shut down early Monday morning. It is a city-licensed business, but that hasn't stopped the feds from moving in.
Several weeks ago, federal prosecutors in California announced they plan on cracking down on medical marijuana dispensaries. Even though medical marijuana is legal in this state, it's still considered an illegal drug by the federal government.
DEA agents began clearing out the Medizen dispensary even before it opened for business Monday. Agents also raided Central Valley Caregivers Co-operative in Stockton about the same time.
A Medizen employee told News10 that his his manager and landlord were never notified by letter or by the federal government. The business was forced to shut down without warning.
"I was supposed to open at 10 a.m. They got here at 7:30. I heard... they came in and basically took all our stuff, seized everything, took all our cash and product and stuff and that's basically it," said employee Mike Amarao."They just said they're shutting all the clubs down in Sacramento, that's all we heard."

Arizona continues to go after dispensaries and push medical marijuana patients to the street to try and find their meds.

Phoenix police seized records, cash and high-grade marijuana after serving a search warrant at a Phoenix medical-marijuana club Wednesday.
Detectives believe Club 2811, 17233 N. Holmes Blvd., Suite 1615, twisted Arizona’s medical-marijuana law for profit, according to police. Six employees of the business were detained and questioned by police.
Police say the case will be submitted to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
Club 2811 was closed Wednesday. The business sent out a release stating, “The 2811 Club remains undaunted and will reopen tomorrow to allow patients to freely exchange their medical marijuana pursuant to the provisions of the medical marijuana act.”
If the business were to sell medical marijuana for profit again, detectives will likely return, according to a police statement.
