WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA - JANUARY 18: The Alternative Herbal Health Services (AHHS) medical marijuana distributor remains closed in the wake of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) raids that shut down 11 medical marijuana clinics around Los Angeles County on January 18, 2007 in West Hollywood, California. Federal authorities do not recognize the California law passed by voters in 1996 known as Proposition 215 that allows some people to grow and smoke the normally illegal herb for medicinal purposes. The raids come in the wake of last week?s vote by the Los Angeles Police Commission to support a moratorium on new marijuana outlets and Police Chief William Bratton's pledge to work with federal authorities to prosecute businesses in violation of the federal prohibition. Raids outside of West Hollywood occurred in the San Fernando Valley, Hollywood, and Venice, California. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)
