The Feds are completely besides themselves with this 'competition' from the states. Until recently it was just the Feds and the Drug Lords who had a monopoly on the dirty money.
Indeed the Feds WANT there to be more dirty money out there so they can 'confiscate it.. Unaudited drug money confiscations fuel some of the most evil covert operations imaginable from our own government,.. they are DEPENDENT on that money and secrecy it brings them.
They will let the business's get enough of a bankroll safed up and then raid them and take the money and leave the plants like they always do. It is all about the money. It isn't about your health, society, the children or morality.. it is about MONEY.. I'm talking about the Feds, not the dispensaries.
