Medical Marijuana: Montana Cannabis Under Fire From FedsSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Fri, 08/10/2012 - 11:26
The Department of Justice's crackdown on California medical marijuana might be the most well known in the country, but it's worth paying attention to legal developments in Montana, where U.S. Attorneys are also doing battle with dispensaries.
As detailed by the Helena Independent Record, federal prosectors don't want suspects involved in medical marijuana sales to be able to use Montana state law -- which OKs curative cannabis -- as a legal defense.
So, they are trying to ban any mention of prescription pot -- and any talk of weed-legalizing state statute -- from this and any similar cases.
