Federal agents have seized hundreds of pot plants in a raid on a San Francisco medical marijuana club and other locations linked to its owners.

Drug Enforcement Agency spokeswoman Casey McEnry says officials
are working with the U-S Attorney's office to determine possible criminal charges.

Agents took plants and a selection of baked goods containing marijuana from an indoor growing operation and warehouse connected to the Hopenet medical marijuana cooperative.

More plants, thousands of dollars in cash, and a quantity of processed marijuana were also taken from the home of Steve and Catherine Smith, who run Hopenet.

California voters legalized medicinal pot use in 1996, but it remains against federal law. McEnry says the DEA doesn't
distinguish between medical marijuana and other marijuana.
