Agents are monitoring the prescription and administering of controlled substances and inspecting pharmacy records, Special Agent Kyle Mori, a spokesman for the DEA, told KTLA.

It is unclear how many warrants were issued Tuesday, but some Southern California locations include Woodland Hills, Riverside and Victorville.

Mori said the warrants are under seal and he couldn’t comment on the investigation.

He added, however, that inspections are typically conducted to help officials regulate the health care and pharmaceutical industry and those involved in prescribing, manufacturing or handling controlled substances.

The inspections tend to take a few hours and at the conclusion, the affected pharmacies will reopen.

In a statement, Kaiser said officials are cooperating fully with the federal agency.

“As always, we are committed to complying with state and federal regulations and ensuring the safety of our patients and members,” the statement read.

  1. This alphabet group is like the Nazis when they invaded France or Amsterdam.. They have turned into this mob that can dictate laws on pain medicine,raid Drs offices where they steal everything in the bldg and keep for themselves..This is America?..Something has to change quick There are a lot of people on their last nerve with this B.S. Someone b4 they end their life from being in pain is going to do the unthinkable…And cant say I would blame them might even cheer

  2. Since when does law enforcement dictate medical care? This is an outrage, a huge over-step by the DEA. Maybe someday these doctors and medical groups will grow spines and stand up to this instead of eternally bending the knee to people who are not doctors. They need to do it for their patients. That’s what doctors are supposed to do, put the well being of their patients first. Not bow and scrape to those who don’t have the medical knowledge or the moral right to dictate the medical care of American citizens. Time to stop cringing, that only encourages this sort of thing.

  3. Eating their own young now? I thought Kaiser was Opiate Hate’s Buddy? Maybe the DEA will eat the DEA soon.
