Dec. 12, 2005 – Federal Agents Execute Widespread Raid on Medical Marijuana Dispensaries in California

“[On Dec. 12, 2005] [f]ederal and local law enforcement officers Monday conducted what activists called the most widespread raid on medical marijuana dispensaries anywhere in California.

Drug Enforcement Administration agents and two area police agencies raided 11 marijuana dispensaries in San Diego and two in San Marcos, questioning employees and customers and carting off documents. The agents also seized an unknown quantity of marijuana.

No arrests were made. Authorities said the investigation was aimed at determining how much marijuana was being sold and who was supplying it.”
