Law enforcement officers are carrying out raids in Topeka on shops selling cannabis products.

The Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office won’t answer questions about how many stores it has raided, on what dates or how much it seized.

Cannabis advocacy groups in Topeka say officers seized goods from several sellers on April 20 — a date celebrated by cannabis enthusiasts — and April 28, and continued their campaign over the past few days.
