Pot smokers across the Bay Area were outraged when they caught wind that the feds were raiding Oaksterdam University, the well-respected cannabis training facility in downtown Oakland. The feds, which included DEA agent and IRS officials, remained tight-lipped about what the hell they were doing there, only saying that things were “sealed.”
Needless to say, the early-morning raid gave the medical marijuana community another damn good reason to protest Obama and his administration. Here's a snapshot of the downtown scene. Incidentally, you could smell the scent of pot wafting in the air during the morning protest.
