Raids on patient resource centers target activists for medical marijuana

Early Thursday morning, 70 officers from various local, county, state and federal agencies participated in coordinated raids investigating what they claimed were “drug trafficking organizations” selling marijuana out of storefronts in Southern Oregon and Eugene according to multiple media outlets. Four arrests were made at the Southern Oregon locations, and two arrests were made in Eugene while police continue looking for a third suspect who was only identified as “male”. The locations were all patient resource centers for Oregon medical marijuana patients and various residences associated with them.
