It may have taken a minute or two, but it seems the United States Drug Enforcement Administration has finally noticed the medical cannabis delivery service that exists in the state of California.
Apparently the feds have extended their medical cannabis crackdown reign to going after the quasi-legal delivery service that has been blooming as of late.
“This is their new gig to try to skirt the law,” claims DEA Special Agent Amy Roderick.
The feds feel the increase in medical cannabis delivery services is directly due to the fact that their efforts have been focused on actual brick and mortar storefronts as opposed to the cannabis-on-call service.
Cali med-jane patients beware; your bring-me-some-bud service of preference may be under surveillance.
Of course they aren’t saying what businesses will be targeted or when they will initiate their strategy, but no one particular business is safe when the feds are involved. Danger! Drug prohibition in process!
“Decisions to proceed with prosecutions will be decided on the merits and federal interest,” a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s Office avowed.
In October 2011 U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy sent warning letters to 250 storefronts throughout San Diego ordering them to close their doors. Today, 18 of those dispensaries remain open with the DEA planning to ensure they also shut their businesses down by the end of summer 2013.
“They have had ample time to understand the letters, so when they don’t close, they can’t be surprised when we show up at their door,” Roderick affirmed.
“We’ve got bigger fish to fry,” my ass! It sure didn’t take the feds very long to get back on the warpath!
The only way the lies come to an end is when we bring this antediluvian war on tokers to a close. Get involved on a grass roots level and be a part of history in the making.
