Dispensary Owner a Victim of Conflicting State, Federal Laws
Matthew Davies, a father of two young daughters from Stockton, is hoping to avoid a federal prison sentence following raids on his medical marijuana dispensaries.
Although the raids happened in 2011, Matthew’s attorney Steven Ragland says they are now inching closer to a resolution.
“We hope some prosecutorial discretion will be used,” Ragland said.
This case points out what medical marijuana advocates have long been saying, conflicting state and federal laws put users in a legal grey area.
Matt’s supporters are pointing people to a petition that can be found on their website: www.keepmattfree.org
