Federal Action Taken Against Medical Pot Dispensaries
On Tuesday, federal prosecutors expanded a statewide crackdown against medical marijuana dispensaries by filing three lawsuits and sending warning letters to a total of 66 dispensaries in Anaheim and La Habra. The lawsuits were filed against landlords who own buildings in Anaheim that house six dispensaries. The letters order the dispensaries to close or face possible criminal charges.
