A South Lake Tahoe medical marijuana provider reopened this week 
after shutting its doors following a raid by the U.S. Drug 
Enforcement Agency in January.

Patient to Patient Collective reopened next door to its previous 
location at 2314 Lake Tahoe Blvd. on Monday, according to a spokesman 
for the collective, who said the group will soon offer a full line of 
marijuana products to eligible patients.

In March, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder indicated the federal 
government would change how it handled medical marijuana dispensaries.

Holder said federal agents would only target medical marijuana 
dispensaries if they violated both state and federal laws. Under the 
Bush administration, federal agents targeted medical marijuana 
dispensaries in California even if they complied with the state's 
medical marijuana laws.

Federal agents seized 10 pounds of processed marijuana and a small 
amount of cash during January's raid, but no arrests were made.
