Unless the federal government can show that these individuals who were raided on Monday had violated state laws, then this was a blatant attempt by the feds to manipulate the legislation that is being debated by our state Legislature, and is contradictory to the statements issued by our president as it pertains to the states' rights regarding medical marijuana. It should be painfully obvious to Montanans that this was an orchestrated attempt to circumvent our state's rights. Everyone should be concerned and only hope this is not as it appears.
