Feds Raid Southern CA Dispensary, Seize Marijuana

Yesterday the Cooperative Patients’ Services in Temecula, California was raided by federal agents who seized 19 pounds of marijuana and over 100 pounds of cannabis edibles.
As usual with DEA raids, no one was arrested. Which tells you these investigations don’t actually turn up any crimes. The only point of these raids is to cripple the medical marijuana industry so that the politicians who get money from Big Pharma continue to get that money.
DEA spokeswoman Sarah Pullen tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise ( http://bit.ly/GHO6yU) that agents served a related search warrant at the Lake Elsinore area property of dispensary founder Douglas Lanphere.
Some 50 marijuana plants were confiscated at that location.
Federal documents claim dispensary sells marijuana to the public for a profit.
If all these crimes are being committed then why no arrests?
Interestingly enough, the dispensary in Temecula has been battling the city over their dispensary ban. Could the feds be sending a message to those who fight to stay open?
Until there is a change in federal marijuana policy, medical cannabis operators and their patients will never be safe. We must all think long and hard about who we vote for the next time we are at the ballot box. Ask yourself if they support freedom, or if they just talk about it.
