Feds threaten to prosecute Rhode Island medical marijuana dispensaries

RI Gov. Lincoln Chafee
U.S. Attorney in R.I. threatens to prosecute pot dispensaries | The Providence Journal

As dispensaries are slated to open this summer in Rhode Island, President Obama's Justice Department has attempted to stop them with a letter delivered to Governor Lincoln Chaffee.

Newly licensed are three dispensaries: Greenleaf Compassionate Care Center, The Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center, and Summit Medical Compassion Center. All three dispensaries were issued a copy of the the letter.

From the US Attorney's letter,
"contrary to federal law, and thus undermines the federal government’s efforts to regulate the possession manufacturing, and trafficking of controlled substance. Accordingly, the Department of Justice could consider civil and criminal legal remedies against those individuals and entities who set up marijuana dispensaries as such actions are in violation of federal law."

  1. Sad to see. The Feds should be using their time and money working on things that are actually important like border control, our economy, poverty, homelessness, and our environment.
