Profits from single medical marijuana store in California

U.S. Attorneys in California filled drug trafficking charges against a store in North Hollywood that was selling medical marijuana. Authorities claim that the store made $15 Million in profits over 8 months.  The six people who worked at the store sold between 600 to 700 pounds of marijuana a month and sold across state lines to stores in New York and Pennsylvania.

Medical marijuana stores in California must not sell marijuana for a profit according to state law.
