At about 7am pst, the Feds raided Oakland’s marijuana based school Oaksterdam University.
Officers wearing U.S. Marshals, IRS and DEA jackets swarmed the Oakland medical marijuana facility on Broadway before 8 a.m. Investigators put yellow crime tape around the entire building.
The Feds have still yet to give their reasoning of why they raided Oaksterdam University, Oaksterdam Museum, Oaksterdam gift shop and the Oakland Cannabis Buyers Cooperative. The Feds stated that it is an “ongoing investigation”. So I guess that means, we just wanted to raid Oakserdam, but didn’t have a good enough reason, so we just said that it’s an “ongoing investigation”. I would assume there really is something going that the people don’t know about. I’m thinking maybe it has something to do with taxes since the IRS is involved too. A spokeswoman for the IRS said that the investigation was under seal in a Northern District Court. The University has been open since 2007 and this is the first of my knowledge of them ever being raided. We will keep you updated as we get more info on the subject.
Update: Founder of Oaksterdam, Richard Lee’s house is also being raided too.
