Crackdown on Medical Marijuana

Federal authorities gave Los Angeles a little reminder Tuesday that not everyone is down with legalized marijuana by raiding several cannabis shops and sending warnings to even more. The U.S. Attorney’s office made clear that this was just the beginning of a widespread federal crackdown on marijuana shops across L.A. “We couldn’t do all of L.A. at once,” said a spokesman for the office. “There’s just too many stores.” Federal authorities have been working their way through Southern California since last October, beginning in Orange County and now finally are making it to Los Angeles.
