Inland Valley California Dispensaries Warned Of Federal Charges
U.S. attorneys sent letters threatening criminal or legal action in federal court if the dispensaries stay open.
U.S. attorneys sent letters Tuesday to more than 50 marijuana dispensaries in San Bernardino, Fontana, Colton and Bloomington threatening criminal or legal action in federal court if the dispensaries stay open.
This is the latest stage in a statewide crackdown that began in October, said Thom Mrozek, a public affairs officer for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
“We’ve gone after different geographic areas, and this enforcement action is the latest phase,” Mrozek said.
The letters give the dispensaries 14 days to stop distributing marijuana.
