    Consistency is important... And the DEA is consistently wrong for busting medical marijuana collectives in marijuana approves states.

    Federal agents on Wednesday raided several medical marijuana dispensaries in the Puget Sound region.

    “Several search warrants were executed today involving marijuana storefronts in King, Thurston and Pierce counties,”

    Drug Enforcement Administration spokeswoman Jodie Underwood said Wednesday. She declined to provide further details, citing the ongoing investigation.

    Washington state legalized adult possession of up to an ounce of marijuana last fall, but marijuana remains illegal under federal law.

    Seattle medical marijuana attorney Douglas Hiatt said the targeted dispensaries included Tacoma Cross, Seattle Cross and Bayside Collective in Olympia.

    The doors of Tacoma Cross at 2409 Pacific Ave. were locked with a deadbolt Wednesday and a hastily scrawled sign in the window said, “Sorry. Closed Until Further Notice.” A stream of customers showed up, peered in the windows and walked on.
