Feds Crackdown on Oakland Harborside Medical Marijuana Dispensary

The largest medical marijuana dispensary in California, and perhaps in the world, is under attack from the US Attorney’s office. Harborside Health Center, with dispensaries in Oakland and San Jose, is the target of an “asset forfeiture” action by the US Attorney for the Northern District of California. The action has triggered vows to keep the dispensary open, and complaints from city officials and lawmakers who call the action a waste of law enforcement resources. Christopher Martinez reports.
