Federal prosecutors pursuing drug charges against Montana medical marijuana operators want to keep jurors from hearing any evidence at trial about the state’s medical pot law or whether the operators were complying with it.

U.S. Department of Justice attorneys have made motions in at least two cases stemming from federal raids on dozens of pot operations this spring, asking those judges to forbid any testimony or evidence at trial about medical marijuana or related issues involving state and federal laws.

“Montana’s medical marijuana laws have no relevance to the present prosecution, which consists of various charges the defendants violated federal law in relation to a marijuana manufacture and distribution scheme,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Thaggard wrote in an August court filing.

  1. Well the federal law which prohibited marijuana was unconstitutional. We need to remember that the federal law says you can possess, grow, transport, and consume marijuana, you just need a marijuana stamp. That’s unconstitutional and there are several Supreme Court cases that say the federal govt cannot do what they did. Fight on, IT IS OUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO USE MARIJUANA. DO NOT LET ANYONE TELL YOU DIFFERENT. YOU ARE THE AMERICAN AND THEY WORK FOR YOU, DON’T FORGET THAT.

  2. The unconstitutionality of the bail conditions is so obviously egregious that this must be opposed all over the country. YOUR free speech rights are being threatened!
    The use of the Federal evidence code to suppress the truth of medpot as an effective medicine in order to incriminate its proponents is outrageous.

    GET OUT YOUR CONGRESSPERSON’S ADDRESS AND START TYPING. ORGANIZE DEMOS. THIS IS A HUGE INJUSTICE AND MUST BE OPPOSED ALL OVER THE COUNTRY!
