Las Vegas Marijuana Shop Closed After Federal Raid

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A Las Vegas consulting firm that says it helps clients obtain medical marijuana has lost its business license amid allegations that it illegally sold the drug.

Dr. Reefer advertises on billboards around Las Vegas.

Clark County revoked the company business license Thursday after Las Vegas police reported that undercover officers bought marijuana from it between December 2009 and September 2010.

The report to county commissioners came after police and federal drug enforcement officers raided the business in September. No arrests were made.

Nevada law allows patients to use marijuana grown at home with a doctor's approval.

But the drug can't be legally bought or sold for medicinal purposes.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada says the county acted improperly by shuttering the business without proof of wrongdoing.
