SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Oakland's lawsuit claiming federal officials are illegally trying to shut down a medical marijuana dispensary has been tossed by a federal magistrate judge.

Oakland was the nation's first city to take on federal enforcement actions aimed at closing down the pot dispensaries.

On Thursday, the San Francisco magistrate judge dismissed the lawsuit filed in October and ruled federal efforts to close Harborside Health Center in Oakland can proceed.

The Los Angeles Times says Oakland lawyers argued that closing down the pot dispensary would lead to a health and safety crisis because many of the dispensary's 108,000 patients would turn to the illegal marijuana market.
