Feds Say Chico Council Could Face Prosecution For Facilitating Marijuana Dispensaries

The Federal Government targets Chico California medical marijuana by harrassing City Officials

Chico City Council members, the police chief and other city staff could face federal prosecution by facilitating dispensaries with the city’s medical marijuana ordinance.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office wants to deter the city from allowing dispensaries that violate federal drug laws, said Dave Burkland, Chico city manager.  U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner for the Eastern District of California met with Burkland, Police Chief Mike Maloney and City Attorney Lori Barker July 14 in Sacramento.

Burkland plans to tell the council at its Aug. 2 meeting the risk it takes by keeping the ordinance that allows for two dispensaries of up to 10,000 square feet each. He was told anyone directly involved with the implementation of the ordinance could face action, such as planning staff, police and himself.
