Raids target Colorado organization accused of exporting pot
DENVER — Authorities are raiding over a dozen locations in Colorado linked with an organization accused of shipping marijuana out-of-state.
The Drug Enforcement Administration says it’s helping local police and prosecutors serve search warrants at 20 locations between the Denver and Colorado Springs areas on Thursday.
Denver television reported that the locations included a spot in a commercial neighborhood in Denver and a home in suburban Castle Rock.
A DEA spokesman says the investigation into the organization has been in the works for months and isn’t the result of any new directive from the Trump administration. There were several rounds of pot raids in the state under the previous administration.
New Attorney General Jeff Sessions has indicated he wants stronger enforcement of federal law on marijuana.
