U.S. Attorney in R.I. Threatens To Prosecute Pot Dispensaries

U.S. Attorney threatens to prosecute those involved in Rhode Island three dispensaries

U.S. Attorney Peter F. Neronha Friday threatened to prosecute civilly and/or criminally those involved in Rhode Island’s three planned medical marijuana dispensaries — from the organizations that would run them to the landlords who rent them floor space. The threat was contained in a letter hand-delivered to Governor Chafee’s office in the morning and also sent Friday to the would-be proprietors of the dispensaries. Jim Martin, Neronha’s spokesman, said the letter is “a reminder” of what he said state officials and the proprietors already know, that it is the policy of the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute significant growers and distributors of marijuana.
