The DEA Wants to Use a $37 Pot Sale to Seize Landlord's $1.5 Million Anaheim Building.

If you have to have a test case for asset forfeiture, this is a great one.

So, an engineer and a dentist purchase a 12-suite office building. One of the tenants (since moved out) was a clinic that dispensed medical marijuana, perfectly legal under state law and although illegal federally, Obama had just issued the so-called Ogden memo, instructing federal prosecutors to not target medical-marijuana patients.

An undercover Anaheim cop shows up with a prescription and purchases $37 worth of dope, then the Anaheim cops turned the information over to the DEA.  Now the fun begins.
