Cannabis Clubs and Centers
Although some cannabis clubs are said to be well-run and work closely with local and state governments, it continues to be a federal crime to have or use marijuana for any purpose.
In October 2001 and February 2002, the DEA raided and closed several cannabis clubs in California. In the process, the DEA confiscated medical records and arrested some participants. Many individuals were charged with crimes relating to those operations.
