Ignoring State Law, Feds Raid Washington Marijuana Dispensaries

Federal agents raided several medical marijuana dispensaries Wednesday in Washington — a state which just decriminalized the drug last year.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's Seattle office confirmed in a brief statement that "several search warrants were executed today involving marijuana storefronts" in the Puget Sound region around Seattle.

It gave no further details, and the number of raids remained unclear Wednesday evening.
