Feds raid Denver-area marijuana dispensaries and grow operations
The Denver Post * By Jeremy P. Meyer and Eric Gorski * 11/21/13
Federal authorities Thursday morning were executing search warrants and seizure warrants at multiple Denver-area medical marijuana facilities, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
The raids are occurring at both medical marijuana dispensaries and at warehouses where pot is grown.
At one raid in Boulder, a pile of seized marijuana lay in the snow like Christmas trees. At the VIP Cannabis dispensary in Denver, broken glass from a shattered front window littered the parking lot while agents hauled boxes of evidence into a U-Haul truck.
"The Drug Enforcement Administration, Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigations, the Denver Police Department and state and local law enforcement are today executing lawfully obtained search warrants and seizure warrants," said Jeff Dorschner, spokesman for the DOJ.
"Although we cannot at this time discuss the substance of this pending investigation, the operation under way today comports with the Department's recent guidance regarding marijuana enforcement matters," Dorschner said in his e-mailed statement to The Denver Post.

4. "Legal my ass!!!"
Pot is the lion's share of the DEA's raison d'etre and concomitant gravy train- they're not giving that up without a fight.
