On Wednesday June 16, 2011, officers in Washington County served search warrants on Wake n Bake Lounge, located at 18918 Shaw St in Aloha, Oregon. Three residences associated with the cannabis club were also searched. Although computers, various equipment and cannabis were confiscated during the execution of the warrant for suspected “manufacturing and distribution of a controlled substance,” no arrests were made.
Sgt. David Thompson issued a press release stating, “Marijuana dispensaries are new to Washington County, have no legal basis to distribute or sell marijuana, and this search warrant is the first to be served on such a dispensary in Oregon.”
Whether or not dispensaries are “new to Washington County” is debatable, since Wake n Bake itself has been opened since November of 2010, according to the same press release, and many others were open in the area prior to the arrival of Wake n Bake Lounge.
