On October 30, 2007, the DEA raided the Compassionate Collective of Alameda County (CCAC) in Hayward, CA.  At the same time, DEA agents raided the homes of operators Winslow and Abraham Norton, arresting both men and charging them with conspiracy to distribute over 100 kilos of marijuana, as well as several related money-laundering offenses.  CCAC had a permit from Alameda County, authorized to operate by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors.  The permit required that they follow stringent regulations and allow the Sheriff's Department to conduct monthly inspections.  CCAC did not have any permit violations during their time of operation in Alameda County.

In February of 2009, both the Nortons' father and the manager of the dispensary, Brian Everett, were indicted in this case and face the same charges as both Winslow and Abraham Norton.  All defendants face a mandatory minimum sentence of 15-20 years.
