Seattle Times: “Washington’s top federal prosecutors have threatened to crack down if the state goes forward with a proposal to legalize medical-marijuana dispensaries and growers, putting in jeopardy a bill that has already passed both chambers of the Legislature. In a letter to Gov. Chris Gregoire on Thursday, U.S. Attorneys Jenny Durkan of Seattle and Michael Ormsby of Spokane wrote that the bill would undermine drug enforcement and could result in an array of prosecutions or civil penalties against dispensary owners and growers, as well as against state regulators enforcing the proposed law.”

When, if ever, will the U.S. Attorney for Arizona tell the potential medical marijuana patients, caregivers, dispensaries and others in Arizona’s newest industry that they are safe from federal criminal prosecution if the strictly comply with Arizona’s medical marijuana laws and rules or that they will be prosecuted despite the fact they comply with Arizona’s laws and rules?
