Raids target San Diego medical marijuana shops
SAN DIEGO—Law enforcement teams from several agencies have raided medical marijuana dispensaries across San Diego.
San Diego police officials say personnel from federal, state and local departments served warrants at an undisclosed number of storefronts across the county, targeting dispensaries in beach communities.
A police spokeswoman did not disclose the reason for the raids or whether there were any arrests.
Officials with the district attorney's office and the Drug Enforcement Administration say they will provide more details at a press conference Thursday.
Americans for Safe Access, a medicinal cannabis advocacy group, decried the raids.
On Tuesday, the San Diego City Council voted to form a citizen's task force that will seek to clarify local laws governing the use of medical marijuana.
