Meanwhile, about 2 miles away, a federal grand inquest sits investigating the taxation and control of marijuana in Mendo, and it appears to be the lower government that is the target , not the growers who paid, but the government that set up the program, and those that signed off on it. Recently a visit with the Attorney General of the United States and the Governor of Wa. State, left the Governor saying, I have received no further enlightenment than what I knew before I arrived in D.C.; meaning that the fed's showed the Governor the federal drug statues, something he could of reviewed in Olympia himself . Another words, they told him nothing of 'their' plans. One thing is certain, should they indict in Mendo, for either taxing marijuana or regulating it there, then the same fate will happen in every state that does so, not just Cali-and be it medical cannabis or recreational cannabis taxes, it will make no difference. This will be a huge body blow to the general cannabis legalization movement as well as compassionate use, and one that did not ever have to happen, as we were warned as early as 1996, when the then attorney general Janet Reno warned, no lower government involvement. It then is my view , that many more like myself, will soon wish we heeded those warnings, as myself and founding leadership have for almost two decades.
