Medical marijuana: Nathan Do, target in Cherry Top Farms raid, killed in crash

One of the stranger marijuana stories of last year involved a federal raid on Cherry Top Farms dispensary -- one not prompted by an investigation into the center, but due to the targeting of Nathan Do, a man associated with a different MMC, who agents were following. Nathan, along with family members Ha Do and Hai Do, were ready to plead in the case, but that won't be happening for him now: He was killed this week in a motorcycle crash.
