DEA agents raid 3 local medical marijuana dispensaries

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The DEA has raided three San Diego medical marijuana clinics for violating federal law.

Warrants were served at two collectives on University Avenue, and one on Garnet in Pacific Beach. The federal government informed the three clinics they had 45 days to either shut down or face criminal charges.

Supporters of medical marijuana protested outside the Golden West clinic in North Park as federal agents confiscated marijuana and related equipment.

"It's a total violation of state rights. California legalized medical marijuana. For the federal government to come in like this is a slap in the face to every Californian," protester Alfonso Padilla said.

At least one person was arrested.
