Default Medical marijuana prosecution illegal, say the prosecutors

The remaining three were sentenced in 2015. Rhonda Firestack-Harvey, 59, the wife of Larry Harvey, was sentenced to a year and a day in prison. Her son, Rolland Gregg, 35, was given a 33-month prison sentence, and his now ex-wife, Michelle Gregg, 38, was sentenced to a year and a day. All three also were sentenced to three years of probation.
But they're free on appeal.

Despite the admissions by the from DOJ, the brief did not recommend charges be dropped against the three defendants. Instead, it urged that further proceedings in the case be bumped back to a federal district court

Okay, the Feds raided in 2012.
The directive (not exactly a law) went into effect at the end of 2014 for subsequent prosecutions.

And the complaint is what? Busted and convicted on a technicality?

Pot is not legal federally. This needs to change. Until it does, people take it at their own risk. And these people cultivated it at their own risk.

With Jerry Sessions as USA, expect more of this. Waste of money, but technically correct.

If I'm reading the history right it is legislation that was part of an omnibus spending bill, and the power of the purse is Congress's core power.
