Attorney: Prosecutors dropping marijuana dispensary case

Posted By Administration, Thursday, May 5, 2016

Federal prosecutors have agreed to drop a nearly four-year effort to seize the property of a California medical marijuana dispensary billed as the nation's largest, the dispensary's attorney said Tuesday.

Henry Wykowski, the attorney for Harborside Health Center in Oakland, said prosecutors did not explain why they were dropping their civil forfeiture case against Harborside. He said the paperwork still has to be filed with the court, which he expected would happen this week.

"It's a wonderful victory for the patients," Wykowski said at a news conference. "It's a wonderful victory for the industry."

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Northern California had no comment, spokesman Abraham Simmons said. Former U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag said at the time she began the process to seize Harborside's property in 2012 that it violated federal law by selling pot, even though medical marijuana was legal in California.
