Melinda Haag had sent letters to the Marin Alliance For Medical Marijuana, ordering the club to close or face some serious penalties, including asset forfeiture and prison time.
The club left the following message on its website:
“We are very sorry to announce that we have shut our doors until we can resolve certain legal issues. The battle is not over,
but we must await further court action that will allow us to reopen, hopefully within a month or two. It's our intention to stay in touch with our member community and keep everyone abreast of the latest developments. Our phone number will remain in operation with message updates and this web site will continue to inform on a regular basis.”
