Medical Pot Raid on Inauguration Day

Medical Pot Raid on Inauguration Day January 25, 2009

Americans for Safe Access has the story of a major federal raid on a medical marijuana dispensary on the same day Obama was sworn in:

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) raided a medical marijuana dispensary today in South Lake Tahoe, California, in the first days of the new Obama Administration…

Medical marijuana and an unknown amount of cash was seized during the raid today from Holistic Solutions, but no arrests were made. This first DEA raid under the new Obama Administration is another example of more than 100 raids on medical marijuana providers that have occurred in California over the past two years.

Obama has pledged to end such raids. While you’re signing executive orders, Mr. President, how about calling off the DEA dogs?
