Reader: Feds who raided marijuana businesses only doing what they promised

William Breathes's post about Juan Guardarrama, a target of federal marijuana raids who was known as Tony Montana during his days as a Florida jewel thief brought an explosion of commentary, much of it charging the DEA with hypocrisy. But this reader thinks the feds were actually as good as their word.

Damian Riniker writes:

I laughed all day long at everyone who was throwing a fit about it. "Omg the feds said they wouldn't do this anymore" no this is exactly what they said they WOULD be doing. You don't follow the rules, you pay the price. Doesn't matter if you're running a marijuana shop or some other business.
