Federal agents raid California marijuana university

IRS spokeswoman mum on purpose of Oakland sweep

OAKLAND, Calif. — Federal agents targeted one of the country’s leading marijuana advocates Monday in a raid on a San Francisco Bay area medical marijuana training school instrumental in pushing for ballot measures to legalize the drug.

The doors to Oaksterdam University in downtown Oakland were blocked by US marshals following an early-morning raid by agents with the Internal Revenue Service and the Drug Enforcement Administration. A museum connected to the school as well as a nearby medical marijuana dispensary operated by Oaksterdam founder Richard Lee were also raided.
