    Selling marijuana is a violation of Federal law.
    Receiving or possessing funds that are KNOWN to the rcvr or possessor to be the proceeds of a federal crime is, not surprisingly, also a federal crime.
    The DEA just pointed out that cars being used for pick-up were subject to the same penalties as any other criminal bag man.

    Folks around here don't seem to realize that personal indignation does not invalidate longstanding federal statute.
