DENVER (CBS4) – Twenty-five more medical marijuana dispensaries were ordered to close on Monday. All were within 1,000 feet of schools.

On Tuesday the US Attorney’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration confirmed all 25 businesses complied with the order to close.

A third wave of warning letters will be forthcoming as marijuana stores are identified within 1,000 feet of a “drug-free school zone.”

One dispensary owner, Jeff Felker, displayed a sign blaming President Obama for shutting down his shop.

Earlier this year 23 dispensaries near schools shut down after receiving letters from the US Attorney.
