North County Pot Club Raided, Shut Down

Following raids at 10 medical marijuana dispensaries around Los Angeles, federal drug agents raided and shut down northern Santa Barbara County’s only pot club, Hezekiah Inc. of Buellton, on 7/26. While other dispensaries currently operating in the City of Santa Barbara were spared in the latest round of raids, this incident marks the second raid on Hezekiah Inc. in two years. According to the DEA, a West Hollywood pot club shut down on 7/25 was run by Hezekiah’s owner, Steve Allbritton.
