Arizona Republic:  “Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery advised the Board of Supervisors this week against issuing permits to medical-marijuana dispensaries on county-controlled lands, fearing a backlash from the federal government. . . . Montgomery said although the federal government clearly will not prosecute seriously ill patients using pot as medicine, the same legal ‘safe haven’ does not exist for dispensary agents or local government employees who implement the state’s law.”

“‘I’m not comforted by a wink and a nod’ from the federal government, Montgomery said”
