Reader: Colorado stood and watched as feds burned Cherry Top Farms dispensary
The conversation about the DEA raid on the Cherry Top Farms dispensary continued on an update post, in which attorney Bob Hoban spoke positively about the decision by the feds not to bust the center's employees.
One reader found this viewpoint hopelessly naive.
Can't wait to get back to work for a state that offered you no protection yet collects money from you. You do realize they have all your info and can press charges years from now right? You think because they left without arresting you that you're in the clear? They know you will start up again, they want you to, it's called a trap. Now, years from now, they can say you have repeatedly and knowingly broken the law. I love how desperate people clinging to meaningless rules set up by the state still think they're safe. You call it safe, I call it building a case against you. You can't say you thought everything was cool because you have a license when the Feds took your weed. Apparently it would be ok with you if they did that every month as long as they don't arrest you. Really? Doesn't sound like a wise business to be in if arrest is your only concern. I think the state should fight for your rights, but you don't? And you're going to pay the fee next year too. Colorado has you by the balls and you seem to like it, even after they stepped aside and watched you burn.
