DEA: Armored cars can’t work with medical marijuana dispensaries

Medical marijuana is legal in California, but the combination of valuable drugs and what is often a cash-only business can attract some rough characters.
That’s why some dispensaries use armored car companies to get their money to and from their favorite bank (or elsewhere). But the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration says no more. The federal authority has told armored car companies they can no longer work with some, perhaps all, cannabis retailers in California and Colorado. LA Weekly has the rest of this absurd story.
