Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Targeted In Robberies

Marijuana clinics seem to be a favorite target of burglars. Three dispensaries, one in Boulder and two in LA, have been hit in less than a week.

In West LA, “three armed bandits” in masks stole thousands cash and supplies.

This follows a similar incident in Reseda on Wednesday.

In Boulder, police have arrested four men who are scheduled to be charged today for the Tuesday robbery of a medical-marijuana distributor, and police think others were involved.

Though three robberies in a week might seem like a lot, this kind of stuff happens all the time. In a climate where medical marijuana suppliers are still criminals according to federal law (even if Eric Holder says he won’t go after them – the law is still the law!), it’s difficult for many in the medical marijuana community to trust the police, making it harder for cops to help protect legal suppliers of medicine like they would a commercial drugstore.
