Marijuana: Feds file to take David Krause's pot warehouse, $850K in seized funds

In June 2013, we told you about a 71-count indictment accusing businessman Conley Hoskins and eleven others with defrauding investors who wanted to cash in on the state's booming medical marijuana industry.

That move was taken by the Colorado Attorney General's Office, but now, the feds are getting involved. The U.S. Attorney's Office has filed a forfeiture action to take a marijuana warehouse owned by indictee David Krause, seen here, plus $850,000 in seized funds. Photos, documents and details below.
