DEA Raids Hope Net

freeman

San Francisco, CA Dec 20, 2005 -- Six DEA agents are currently sitting in two black pick-up trucks awaiting a search warrant to enter Hope Net, one of S.F.'s most respected dispensary.

Over 75 patients are currently rallying in front of the dispensary chanting "DEA, go away!

We are asking patients, caregivers and supporters to show up at Ninth and Howard Sts.

About a dozen federal agents raided the home of a couple who operate a local medicinal marijuana club early today, seizing 122 plants and an estimated $20,000 in assets.

Shortly after noon, several agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration remained in vans outside the club at 223 Ninth St. in the South of Market neighborhood, apparently waiting for a warrant to search it as well.
