Feds Raid Another Medical Marijuana Clinic
September 28, 2006
As supporters of medical marijuana planned a downtown demonstration for noon Friday, Federal drug enforcement agents raided a medical marijuana clinic and arrested three people in North Hills on Thursday afternoon.
Neighbors and others in the office building at 15600 Devonshire where the arrests took place had complained about marijuana smoking in the building, hallway and bathrooms. Some neighbors claimed the drug was being resold on the street.
NBC4's Robert Kovacik said a similar raid took place at a Van Nuys facility on Aug. 30, and two other raids also took place recently in Mendocino and Riverside.
Although state voters approved medical marijuana, federal law bans marijuana for any use.
