DOJ Closes Two Marijuana Dispensaries

Federal Officers threatened the owners of the two dispensaries with property seizure if they did not leave the premises.


The federal crackdown on medical marijuana clubs continued Tuesday, as two San Francisco dispensaries blamed their closing on threats from the U.S. Justice Department.

"The Justice Department sent our landlord one of those nasty letters," HopeNet co-founder told KNTV-TV.

According to The San Francisco Examiner, U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag's office did not comment on the closures, but the letters sent to the landlords of HopeNet and the Vapor Room warned them they faced property seizure and other penalties if the clubs did not leave the premises.
