DEA Back to it’s Old Tricks – Raids San Fran Marijuana Dispensary

March 27, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Apparently someone didn’t get the memo in the Drug Enforcement Agency’s office or just choose to ignore it. Most everyone else heard Attorney General Eric Holder announce last week, a policy shift away from the DEA raiding marijuana dispensaries in states that have approved medical marijuana.

But DEA agents raided Emmalyn’s California Cannabis Clinic in San Francisco on Wednesday, leaving it mostly empty. Perhaps no coincidence on Wednesday’s the Marijuana Dispensary happens to give out free marijuana to poor people.

Saying the specific reason for the raid is under court seal, the DEA would only say the dispensary is suspected of violating federal and state law.

By claiming the case involves violations of state law, DEA is able to maintain the appearance of abiding by the attorney general’s pledge to respect state medical marijuana laws.

Given all the recent violence on the Mexican border, does this seem like a good use of DEA resources?

    Emmalyn’s provided free medicine to poor people every wednesday. Obama’s troops robbed them and stole their medicine. If this was a ‘tax’ problem, why did they not contact their lawyers and dealt with them like they do any other business? Because Obama and his DEA punks are weak ass liars.

    Giving out medicine to the poor for FREE!?!?!?
    Now that is a crime… I mean how could these bastards cut into the profits of poor innocent pharmaceutical corporations in a time of economic crisis??? I mean common, corporations are people too you know(under law)… and these bastards are trying to kill them!!! The dispensary owners should be sued for attempted murder!!!

    yes this is sarcasm and if you don’t get it, than get off the Ritalin…
