Supposedly closed Atwater medical marijuana dispensary again raided by Sheriff’s Dept.

In late March a medical marijuana in Atwater, known as Goodfellas, was shut down after the Merced County Sheriff’s Office seized 65 marijuana plants and $20,000 during a raid.

Last week, the MSheriff’s Dept was back at the property(located at 3600 Atwater Road) for another raid, even though the alleged owner, a Paul Canto, claimed the current supply of marijuana was for personal use. 

In Merced County it is illegal to sell marijuana, regardless of it’s use- medical or recreational.

Citizens in Merced County are allowed to grow up to 12 plants per parcel (residence) for medical consumption and up to six plants for personal, recreational use.

The latest raid netted $4,000 in marijuana products.
