In this episode: Is the US federal government cracking-down on medical marijuana? A new memo and a barrage of federal raids in Montana and other states have the cannabis community on edge. John Masterson from Montana NORML joins the show to discuss the latest.
A new memo from the US federal government makes clear that authorities plan to go after medical marijuana dispensaries, “regardless of state laws.” New raids at 26 locations in 13 cities across Montana and raids in other states have medical marijuana activists wondering if the Feds are ramping up for a Nationwide offensive.
