Mml Lie Number One "problems" In Ca

Recommended Posts

First item that is being handed to the folks at the MML is that there are a "lot" of problems in CA with dispensaries.


What are those problems?


From a federal point of view, that would be the distribution of marijuana. They ignore the fact that these locations distribute marijuana to sick people. As the feds consider such distribution a "crime wave" they have been involved in countless raids against such operations.


"There's a LOT of crime related to these locations."


What other "crimes" are related to these retail locations?




This is where the federal government loses it's mind. These locations have something of value. It's claimed that this represents a danger to the community. Therefore they should be closed down.


Very sick logic. Should banks be closed just because someone might rob them in the future?


Potential diversion of mmj into the black market is another "problem" feds list.

So close down every drug store! They market dangerous, deadly drugs that get to the street all the time!


If that is a justifiable reason to close down a dispensary, then it's an even stronger reason to close down every drug store in the country.


Can anyone else list any other sort of "problem" the feds claim exists with dispensaries?

Some of their other scare tactics about dispensaries include the ole tar and feather of the owners with press releases such as:


DENVER - More than half of those who own medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado have criminal records, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration says.


The DEA says the crimes the dispensary owners were arrested for include sexual assault, weapons violations, and burglary.


Four have been arrested for murder or attempted murder.



Oh and let's not be confused on their standing on dispensaries...


Denver DEA Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey Sweetin says marijuana is not medicine and is still illegal under federal law. Sweetin said he’s been gathering information on dispensary owners and their operations for months.


“Technically, every dispensary in the state is in blatant violation of federal law,” Sweetin told The Denver Post. “The time is coming when we go into a dispensary, we find out what their profit is, we seize the building and we arrest everybody. They’re violating federal law; they’re at risk of arrest and imprisonment.”
