CaliforniaFive cannabis dispensaries were raided by a multi-agency task force in Southern California Oct. 6, with 11 arrested in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties. Among those targeted was the Alternative Medicine Collective of Covina. "This organization was definitely working outside the law," said Capt. Ralph Ornelas of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Narcotics Bureau said. "Our investigation proved they were charging people and making a profit out of it. You're not supposed to make a profit."

Also raided were the Palm Springs Holistic Collective, the Riverside Compassionate Wellness Center, the San Diego Holistic Collective, and the Compassionate Medical Collective in San Diego. Officials seized 35 plants, 78 pounds of processed cannabis, seven gallons of concentrated cannabis oils, about 4,000 pre-packaged edibles; hydroponic growing equipment and chemicals; and about $20,000 in cash. The edibles  included, "Lolly pops, ice pops, candy bars, brownies—all that stuff," Ornelas said.  (Pasadena Star-News, Oct. 6)
