    The law prohibits landlords from renting space to medicinal marijuana dispensaries. The U.S. Attorney's Office gave landlords a 45-day warning to close down the dispensaries or face prosecution and have their property seized.

    Special Agent Amy Roderick said more raids would be coming in the following weeks.

    "We will eventually close every single one down in San Diego County," she told NBC San Diego.

    One man was arrested outside the dispensary during today's raid but San Diego Police Department said it was for carrying a concealed weapon.
