Last week, federal agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration raided a series of medical marijuana dispensaries in Washington state. Marijuana and employee cell phones were apparently the intended targets of the raid.
Surprisingly, for an agency that makes money from drug-money seizures, marijuana money was largely ignored. At one dispensary in Olympia, agents left $1,000 dollars in cash untouched, as well as the store’s computers.
A spokesperson for the DEA told the Associated Press that the raids were part of a two-year investigation.
