Marijuana Raid Gives Pot Activists Even More Reason to Hate on The Feds

Posted By on Mon, Apr 2, 2012 at 4:56 PM

Pot smokers across the Bay Area were outraged when they caught wind that the feds were raiding Oaksterdam University, the well-respected cannabis training facility in downtown Oakland. The feds, which included DEA agent and IRS officials, remained tight-lipped about what the hell they were doing there, only saying that things were "sealed."

Needless to say, the early-morning raid gave the medical marijuana community another damn good reason to protest Obama and his administration. Here's a snapshot of the downtown scene. Incidentally, you could smell the scent of pot wafting in the air during the morning protest.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
