Billings medical marijuana operation raided
BILLINGS (AP) — Federal and local authorities have raided a medical marijuana business in Billings and seized an undisclosed amount of marijuana and equipment.
The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/HYxCYr) that agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration and members of the City Drug Task Force on Friday executed a federal search warrant at the business on Enterprise Avenue.
Task force member Sgt. Brian Korell says he couldn't provide additional details because it was a federal investigation.
Montana Cannabis Industry Association board member Nicole French says the number of medical marijuana dispensers and patient cardholders has fallen in the last year following a series of raids on dispensers.
Montana's Department of Public Health and Human Services says that in March 12,000 patients were enrolled with the Montana Marijuana Program, down from 30,000 at the peak.
