      NOVATO, Calif. (AP) - Federal prosecutors are going after two marijuana dispensaries in Novato.

      The  U.S. Attorney's Office filed court papers this week to seize the properties that house the Green Door Wellness Education Center and the Green Tiger.

      The two dispensaries are in adjacent suites at the same location.

      The Green Tiger has since closed its doors. Scot Candell, an attorney for the dispensary, says its operators did not want the landlords to lose their property.

      The Green Door is still operating. Director Lawrence Pebbles says it will remain open unless it receives a direct order to close.

      Federal prosecutors announced a crackdown on pot dispensaries in California last year.
