Good morning from Hillcrest.
- Medical marijuana leads the day after a stunning multi-agency raid hit medical marijuana outlets across San Diego County yesterday. CityBeat reported that the raid was the culmination of a five-month investigation into local collectives and co-operatives that were operating as for-profit businesses rather than nonprofits as detailed in state attorney general guidelines. CityBeat also heard from someone at a raid and talked to the feds. Here’s the U-T’s report and the North County Times’ report.
For context on the entire medical marijuana issue, here’s my story from today.
