Pot Shops Close After Federal Threats

SPOKANE — Three medical marijuana shops in the Wenatchee area have closed after federal prosecutors threatened to seize the properties and to fine or prosecute the landlords.

Medical marijuana store operator Eric Cooper says the letters last week from Eastern Washington U.S. Attorney Michael Ormsby prompted three existing dispensaries to close immediately.

He says the fourth shop in the area is staying open a little longer but also intends to close.
