cannabisOn May 10, two Montana medical cannabis providers—Montana Caregivers Association and MCM Caregivers—filed suit against the federal Department of Justice, Attorney General Eric Holder, and the US Attorney for Montana Michael Cotter in US District Court in Missoula. At issue are the federal raids that occurred across the state in March. The plaintiffs say the feds both violated their constitutional rights in the raids, and attempted to improperly abrogate Montana's medical marijuana law. "The federal government has made clear its intent to threaten and eventually eliminate any business or enterprise related to the medical use of marijuana," they charged in a prepared statement.
