Marijuana Legalization: Pot Crackdowns in California Are Abusive And Ineffectual
Tom McKay in Politics,Drugs 2 days ago

“We are confused and absolutely terrified” — the shocking words of Molly Davies, wife of Matt Davies, a California medical marijuana provider who is being indicted by federal authorities and may face up to 10 years in prison.

Matt Davies has not been charged with any crime by the state of California, as he operated his Medizen dispensary with painstaking attention to state law, which allows the operation of medical marijuana dispensaries. Yet he and co-owner Lynn F. Smith and warehouse grow operation manager Robert Duncan are being charged by the U.S. Attorney’s Office as if they were large-scale criminal drug dealers. Charged with five years, federal prosecutors have threatened to add additional charges with a 10-year minimum sentence unless he pleads guilty.

In a letter to be sent to President Obama on Monday and viewable at the Huffington Post, Molly Davies writes that she and her husband are “a regular, middle-class family” who did not start the business for the money – the Davies took in less than $50,000 a year for managing an operation which employed dozens of people – and that despite not breaking any state laws, they now have to face the prospect of their children growing up without a father. Molly Davies insisted that her husband did not begin the operation with the intent of profiteering, instead highlighting how Matt’s grandfather died slowly and painfully from cancer – and how medical marijuana could have eased his pain.
