Montana Caregivers Sue Federal Government Over Raids

On Tuesday two Montana medical cannabis caregivers filed suit against the federal government, the Department of Justice, Attorney General Eric Holder, and the U.S. Attorney for Montana Michael Cotter in U.S. District Court in Missoula, MT. At issue are the federal raids that occurred across the state in March.
The owners of the Montana Caregivers Association and MCM Caregivers say the feds violated their constitutional rights with the raids, and pre-empted Montana’s medical marijuana law. It could be the first lawsuit of its kind in The United States.
We here at The 420 Times would like to salute these caregivers for fighting back against the federal government and these outrageous intrusions into state business. While the feds seem invincible, we still have a constitution in this country and no one is above the law of the land. And even though this lawsuit could be a long shot, we can never stop fighting the purveyors of tyranny in this country. We must stand up for medical marijuana patients because they are the ones who ultimately suffer from federal actions.
The feds are finding that their intimidation tactics are very effective. This lawsuit – and more to follow in other states soon, I’m sure – serve to let the feds know we won’t roll over and let them do this to sick people; citizens they are supposed to be protecting.
