DEA Wants Records From Many Of Remaining Dispensaries In San Francisco

The DEA is requesting that the city of San Francisco hand over the records on 12 of their 21 remaining dispensaries. The “DEA financial investigative team” sent emails to the health department asking for various sets of records, including permits and ownership information.
The federal government is obviously looking for ammunition to use in their war on medical marijuana in California, and they will use anything as justification.
Last year the same request was made of 5 San Francisco dispensaries; all 5 were forced to close, two staying alive as delivery services.
The writing is on the wall and has been for several months in California. The medical marijuana industry in the Golden State is marked for destruction, and they are not going to stop until the dispensary system is decimated. Five dispensaries have already closed down in San Francisco alone since the recent crackdown began in October.
Advocates and medical marijuana business owners are in for a long battle in California. As the crown jewel and elder statesman of medical marijuana states, it is the biggest target, and therefore sends the loudest message. If the feds can knock off a couple big states they hope the rest will dismantle their systems, or even better, make medical marijuana illegal again.
Only you can stop that from happening. Make your voice heard. Let your federal representatives know that enough is enough.
