IRS audits California medical marijuana dispensary

Harborside Health Center proclaims itself the world's largest marijuana dispensary. Its Oakland, California facility handles $22 million in annual medical marijuana transactions.

The outcome may eventually establish whether U.S. tax authorities treat medical marijuana as a legitimate enterprise or illicit drug trafficking.
