Harborside Health Wins vs. Feds
Harborside Health Wins vs. Feds as the federal government agreed to drop its four-year bid to shut down Oakland’s Harborside Health Center, the biggest medical marijuana dispensary in the country with more than 100,000 patients.
The Department of Justice did not immediately comment on the deal, which Harborside said still needed to be finalized, with all of the parties in the legal fight signing off.
“We celebrate the release from federal prosecution,” said Mayor Libby Schaaf. “We believe in compassion, we believe in health.”
