CaliforniaFederal authorities on Sept. 25 took legal action against over 70 medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles County— sending warning letters to 68 properties, filing forfeiture suits against three, and serving search warrants at another three.  "Over the past several years, we have seen an explosion of commercial marijuana stores—an explosion that is being driven by the massive profits associated with marijuana distribution," said US Attorney André Birotte Jr in a statement.  "As today's operations make clear, the sale and distribution of marijuana violates federal law, and we intend to enforce the law. Even those stores not targeted today should understand that they cannot continue to profit in violation of the law." The statement said the targets include "all known marijuana stores in the Eagle Rock and downtown areas of Los Angeles, as well as the single store known to be operating in Huntington Park."
