    Answered . No and don't expect them anytime soon - besides the politics, there is a LOT of money involved for the people involved that actually do the raiding.

    This is more opinion that any legal conclusion from my work in the area.

    Marijuana is still illegal federally. However, Obama has made it clear that he does not want federal money being spent on DEA raids in states such as California where medical marijuana is legal under state law. At this point, my impression is that there are still some rogue agents that will raid a dispensary and take medicine and money, but in general charges are not be filed against the patients.
