Feds’ marijuana crackdown ripples across NorCal

Monday, February 27, 2012

imageNice updater over the weekend by AP’s Lisa Leff on the latest federal marijuana crackdown and the rather uneven impact it’s having across Northern California. Among other things, the Mendocino County sheriff’s highly-successful (lucrative) permitting process has gone up in smoke, and communities near and far (especially pot-friendly ones) are on edge. An excerpt:

After four-and-a-half months, the federal government's highly publicized offensive has reverberated unevenly throughout California. It has resulted in a near-total shutdown of storefront pot dispensaries in some cities that welcomed federal intervention. It has upset officials in pot-friendly places, who thought they had found the right formula for facilitating legal use. And it has created uncertainty in localities still struggling to curtail their pot outlets.
