Grand Jury Criticizes California Town Over Pot Farm
Grand Jury accuses Northern California town of ignoring federal law.
Officials in a northern California town who approved a plan to create a medical marijuana farm have drawn a rebuke from a grand jury that accused them of ignoring federal law. The Sacramento County grand jury report points to the conflict between federal and state law in California, where possession and cultivation of small amounts of marijuana for medical purposes is legal. The grand jury report carries only recommendations, not criminal penalties, and prosecutors have not filed any charges relating to the project.
