The search war­rant was served at the Lazy Lion smoke club.

FBI spokes­woman Deborah Sher­man said no one was ar­rested in the op­er­a­tion. Ac­cord­ing to a source, agents from the FBI, ATF and IRS are in­volved in the search.

The Lazy Lion is a pri­vate, mem­bers- only “cannabis bar/ dab bar,” ac­cord­ing the busi­ness web­site.

“No red card needed,” it ad­ver­tises.

The on­ly­mem­ber­ship re­quire­ment, how­ever, is that ap­pli­cants pro­duce a valid iden­ti­fi­ca­tion prov­ing they are at least 21 and pay a $ 5 mem­ber­ship fee.

The busi­ness has sev­eral pri­vate rooms each equipped with Er­rlec­tric Enails, com­fort­able couches, TVs and video gamesys­tems.

“We of­fer a re­lax­ing pri­vate at­mos­phere or a place to come so­cial­ize, smoke, play video games andwatch TV with friends,” the web­site says.
