DEA Raids Denver Dispensaries

Federal agents executed search and seizure warrants on several medical marijuana facilities in the Denver area this morning. Department of Justice spokesman Jeffery Dorschner confirmed to CNM that multiple locations are involved, but would not provide a number as to how many may be included in the enforcement actions.

“The Drug Enforcement Administration, Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigations, the Denver Police Department and state and local law enforcement are today executing lawfully obtained search warrants and seizure warrants,” Dorschner said through an emailed statement.

“One important note: Although we cannot at this time discuss the substance of this pending investigation, the operation under way today comports with the Department’s recent guidance regarding marijuana enforcement matters. As this is an on-going investigation, no additional information will be made available.”

    They have been selling the dope, not completely what they told the goverment, which was we are using it to prodce tablets and medication and for wider studies of medical research so the goverment cud make tax on selling it as tablet form, they contradict what they say when they say Drug Dealer….

    I thought marijuana is legal in colorado. Wtf are they doing. Eric Holder said he will probably not go after cooperatives/dispensaries in legal states. The state of Colorado sent letters asking the federal government to not raid dispensaries or medical marijuana coops. They have gone back on their word apparently. They apparently support drug cartels and are not working for the us. Its apparent the feds are mexican mafia or part of organized crime. Impeach obama and stop funding a government that works for foriegn mafias.

    Nice to see that the government kept their word and backed off so states could make their own laws and decisions regarding cannabis. I am suspecting that they were not abiding by the law or not paying taxes or something to that extent.
