After the DEA raided the AZ Green Go’s cannabis club and arrested two of its owners Bill Montgomery, the Maricopa County Attorney, issued this statement on September 30, 2011:
“The current action by the Drug Enforcement Agency underscores the importance of having the U.S. District Court determine whether the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act can operate consistent with federal law. My concern about the potential liability for County employees continues.”
Mr. Montgomery’s statement causes concern over his ability to do the medical marijuana math. He concludes that the arrest of somebody for allegedly selling marijuana in violation of Arizona’s medical marijuana law means that state workers not selling marijuana could also be arrested by the DEA. Duh!
