    Montana can be any kind of real, serious criminal. Haha

    If they were limiting their raids to just known criminals, that would be one thing, but they're not even arresting or charging people often times. Just stealing their shit. And it seems that reserving the right to close a place because of money going to a known criminal leaves the possibility open for shutting just about anyone down with marijuana still being a Schedule 1 substance according to the Feds.

    At the very least, they need to be far more transparent with the reasoning behind their raids. If they're trying to limit the flow of money to gangs and cartels, I think that's a good goal. But would YOU invest your life-savings into a marijuana dispensary under this kind of threat? If organized crime is a problem among dispensaries, I'd have to think at least part of that has to be due to the kinds of bad incentives federal policy creates.
