Kent police serve search warrants at four medical marijuana dispensaries

Kent police today served search warrants at four medical marijuana dispensaries that were warned in June to close or lose their business licenses and face possible criminal charges.

The city said it recently mailed a second round of cease and desist notices to the dispensaries.

Police last week confirmed marijuana was still being sold at the four businesses and obtained search warrants. During the searches today, officers said they seized drugs, computers, cell phones, security devices and weapons.

Kent Mayor Suzette Cooke blamed the ambiguous state law for placing the city in a “precarious position.”

“We cannot just stand by while activity that is illegal under state and federal law occurs in the city,” Cooke said in a statement.

    I think it would be better to investigate them for Federal Income Tax evasion.
    Probably a lot of cash is going into this and lots of profits are most likely being not reported.It got Al Capone.

    If you haven’t watched this video of a Colorado Professor talking about medical marijuana, you are not well informed on the subject of medical marijuana. So watch this before revealing the fact that you know nothing of which you speak
