Editor’s note: Medical marijuana access point Seattle Collective Garden sent this message to its email list on Friday. I’ve been on SCG’s email list ever since I reviewed the shop for the Seattle Weekly last November (they were quite good, and Ruby was one of the best budtenders I’ve seen).
With heavy hearts and a heap of frustration we regret to inform you that Seattle Collective Garden recieved a terroristic style letter from the DEA strong-arming us to close our garden.
As many of you know this past year has been very challenging for Ben, with losing his brother and multiple trips out of state to tend to Mom, the burglaries, thefts, extreme competition, and now this.
It’s a lot for one person, and there are no resources or energy left to fight.
Effective immediately SCG is closed.
