Federal Agents Reopen War Against Marijuana

Compiled From Wire Services

After a short truce, the medical marijuana battle resumed Monday when federal agents raided a supplier, seizing 331 marijuana plants.

Drug agents kicked in the door of the Flower Therapy Club in San Francisco’s Mission District around 6 a.m. and seized the plants, 15 grow lights and various other paraphernalia, co-owner Beth Moore said.

No arrests were made.

“We’ve really followed the rules here and it’s senseless why they should target us,” Moore said.

The Flower Therapy club opened last September, just before the passage of Proposition 215.
