There needs to be more coverage of this. Regardless of your stance on the overall marijuana issue one thing is clear, a slap to freedom and democracy has occurred. We're being lied to and our peaceful will as a public by use of ballot is no longer respected by our government.(Obama's pledge not to peruse these cases and a bill passed by the people at a rate of 68% passage.)

Not only that but it's now obvious with the multiple moratoriums and this incident our officials have no interest in an economic recovery in Mid-Michigan. If they did they'd realize that at no time in history has an opportunity presented it's self creating sum 40 entirely new and independent business in this area in under 2yrs time. and during dismal economic times no less when others are closing up. Topping that news, this has been able to occur without a penny in public funds, subsidies, tax breaks, or incentives of any kind, strictly the private sector at work, and we're going to penalize it.

Hey there,

cut the feds some slack, will ya ??? After all, they are under a lot of pressure from the pharma lobby to keep their profits rolling in. No profits = no "contributions". We can't have that regardless of public health and will.
