The Riverside Press-Enterprise says San Bernardino authorities raided a clinic on Thursday, seizing 30 pounds of marijuana and citing four people for operating a pot shop. The city's also sent closure notices to some 30 clinics with threats of $1,000-a-day fines.

In Riverside County, the Beaumont City Council will consider a ban on May 21 and Murrieta officials are considering drafting one.

The Supreme Court ruled Monday in a Riverside case. Riverside City Attorney Greg Priamos says he's trying to shut down 10 remaining dispensaries. He wants the U.S. attorney's office to notify property owners that the clinics are illegal under federal law.

I wonder how much the Big Banks are charging the cartels to launder all the illegal marijuana sales ? Remember Meena , Arkansas under Bill Clinton? If your younger you surely don't so google ; Meena Arkansas airport scandal.

THEY HAVE TO KEEP IT ILLEGAL because the taxes the states will collect will not make to the rich and powerful.
