What a waste of time and money. Here we have hard-working Montanans developing lucrative businesses, employing Montanans, and getting the economy back on its feet, only to be ripped away by the federal authorities. Why? Does this seem like government intimidation? Does this seem like some unhappy tea bags in power pulling strings to "give a message" to those in the medical marijuana industry because they know that the people will not support the repeal? Let's wake up, look at what is happening, and stand up for our rights. Do we still live in a democracy or do we live in a land where intimidation wins the day? What can we do to get our voices heard?
