Medical marijuana dispensaries in Washington state have been raided by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the agency confirmed today.
Washington law allows possession of up to 24 ounces of marijuana, or 15 plants, and provides for licensed dispensaries to sell the drug to people with medical marijuana prescriptions. Possession of up to one ounce of recreational marijuana is also legal in Washington (and in Colorado). But the drug is still illegal for medical use under federal law, hence the DEA raids.
