    Seven weeks before the nation's first retail marijuana shops open in Colorado, federal authorities on Thursday raided more than a dozen Denver metro area marijuana facilities and two homes.

    In the largest federal raid on Colorado marijuana businesses since medical marijuana became legal, federal law enforcement agents with an assist from local police officers executed search and seizure warrants at multiple dispensaries and cultivation facilities — at least a dozen in Denver alone.

    Agents also raided two private residences, according to sources speaking to The Denver Post on condition of anonymity.

    Federal officials wouldn't give specific reasons for the raid, other than to say one of eight federal concerns around marijuana have potentially been violated. Those concerns include trafficking marijuana outside of states where it has been legalized and money laundering.

    A search warrant obtained by The Post lists 10 "targets," who are owners of marijuana facilities.

    James "Skip" Wollrab, an attorney for one of the targets, said his client did nothing wrong. He followed state regulations closely.

    "They took $1 million worth of plants from his facility," said Wollrab, who represents Laszlo Bagi, owner of Swiss Medical in Boulder. "They didn't leave any instructions, saying don't replant. There was no court order of cease and desist. No explanation."

    Outside Swiss Medical, agents left a pile of seized marijuana stacked in the snow like Christmas trees until a front-end loader scooped it up.

    Wollrab said the agents were also raiding Bagi's grow facilities in Commerce City and the effect will likely bankrupt his client.

    Another raid targeted one of the largest dispensaries in the state — VIP Cannabis in Denver. Broken glass from a shattered front window littered the parking lot while masked agents hauled boxes of evidence into a U-Haul truck. Police turned customers away. The dispensary's website said it would be closed on Thursday and Friday.

    Jeff Dorschner, spokesman for the U.S. Department of Justice in Denver, said the raids were being conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Internal Revenue Service criminal investigations unit, the Denver Police Department and state and local law enforcement.

    He said no arrests were made.


    Governor? I believe your state's voters have spoken. Maybe it's time for you to do the same. It's an unwinnable war.

    and noone can tell me that it's just eric "the incompetent" holder's idea. the fish rots.....oops i mean the justice dep't does what our dear leader wants it to do.

    Yep Spazz. Crazy day today here in Colorado. Obama and the DOJ said they would leave us alone, they lied. It will be a shit storm when retail marijuana stores open in January. Glad to see the DEA has tons of money and time to go after these dangerous dispensaries.

    Oh and I love the 1 million dollars worth of plants seized statement also. Very inflated numbers. A pound of high grade pot here used to be about $3,500-4,000 a pound. Now it's more like $1,200. Most growers are moving to the black market.

    It's funny how they divide us with this Conservative/Liberal, Left/Right, Red/Blue bullshit when it's really just big busine$$ running the direction of this Country and to hell with what the people want.

    Insurance companies, big oil, defense contractors and in this case Pharmaceutical companies are scared shitless that there bottom line is going to take a huge hit if legal weed takes hold.

    I'm all for Capitalism, but this is just getting silly.:facepalm:

    The big came to my town stood 20 yards in front of me and said he'd respect States Right to the collectives procurement of medicine and then shut them all down. They're opening again very slowly and discretely

    A 29 year old male from Vermont was on a radio show recently screaming that his health insurance was going up 257%. "I voted for this?"
