Medicinal Marijuana Dispensary Raided By DEA

The Drug Enforcement Agency raided a Bakersfield marijuana dispensary Monday morning.

Members of the DEA along with the Kern County Sheriff’s Department raided Nature’s Medicinal Cooperative in north Bakersfield around 9 a.m.

The agencies have a search warrant for the pot dispensary along with arrest warrants for several people involved with the distribution.

Officials questioned several employees at the business and eventually let them go, but one person was arrested.

An undisclosed second location was also raided at the same time where several people had been arrested according to officials.

This is the second raid on this shop; the first was May 1 of this year.

A shop clerk said they don’t know if they will be able to recover from this latest raid since they took a hard hit the first time.
