Rolling pot dispensary targeted in Calif.

A California couple have converted a motor home into a rolling medical marijuana dispensary that has become the target of police.

Stewart Hauptman and Helen Cherry have been on the road with their Lakeview Collective for seven months, serving about 700 members from Southern California and as far away as Las Vegas.

They were cited this month by police for possessing drug paraphernalia and operating a dispensary.

Cherry says they are a nonprofit serving medical marijuana patients. Police say it's a for-profit operation.

The couple says they will contest the citations and challenge zoning laws that ban dispensaries.
