The Feds Are Raiding Oaksterdam University

Federal officers arrived in the 7 a.m. hour Monday.

Oakland’s Oaksterdam University was taken over by federal officials Monday morning.

Officers wearing U.S. Marshals, IRS and DEA jackets swarmed the Oakland medical marijuana facility before 8 a.m. Monday. Yellow tape was keeping everyone away.

The nearby Oaksterdam Museum was also being blocked off, according to NBC Bay Area Christie Smith. Officials on the scene were not commenting on their purpose other than to say that is what part of “an ongoing investigation and that the details were sealed.”

From California ASA:

Law enforcement agents believed to be from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are raiding the home and businesses of licensed medical cannabis provider and activist Richard Lee in Oakland. Americans for Safe Access (ASA) is calling on patients and advocates to go to Oaksterdam University in downtown Oakland to protest the raids and support the victims. Take signs, banners, bullhorns, etc. We need for law enforcement and the media to know that we will not stand for this injustice!

Go to 1600 Broadway (at 17th St.), Oakland, CA 94612 to protest right now.

Be sure to take note of what law enforcement agencies are on hand and if anyone is arrested inside the facility. ASA will send more information as soon as we have it. You may also wish to follow ASADonDuncan on Twitter for updates.

  1. The abuse of power by federal agencies will continue until the citizens seize back that power and bitch slap the tyrants into their place.

    Bless the day when no federal agent (or their international banker masters) can find sanctuary or succor  anywhere on this planet.

    It’s time for the extirpation to begin.

    I just said a prayer for Mr Lee.
    Probably didn’t do much good, ’cause I cursed DEA and IRS dudes. 

  3. Stupid hippies have ruined pot with greed and deserve to pay the price for it. Oh and they have smoked themselves into a vegetative state and believe their own lies. Burn baby burn. 

  4. wth….not good at all. Richard Lee has done nothing but good for the cannabis culture and this is how he is rewarded. our gov is sick. we need to unite and make some changes right now.
