NJ dispensaries, and / or those who support those dispensaries (in either the police or NJ state govt) are paying "protection" of some kind to the feds.

Oakland is not.

The "protection" could be in the form of cash, lucrative contracts, promises to back legislation, or any number of other things that Oakland and / or CA is not doing to the satisfaction of the feds.

If you simple understand that the US Federal Govt now operates like the worlds largest and most sophisticated mafia racket: a whole lot of things become clear.
