Well the owners are a husband and wife; it was retirement investment money. They were being stupid for believing the FEDS saying it would be overlooked. And even though something is against the law I don’t think the property owners should lose everything they have because of something illegal someone else did on their property. The police and FEDS have done this to property owners that didn’t even know someone had done something illegal on their property.

like i said, i don't agree with it but, they knew what was being sold there and should have known better... after all it was a business with a sign, not like it was being sold out of a rented house without their knowledge

anybody that risk their retirement like that, well... i guess i don't know what to say

even if they get to keep the property, they will lose more then the rent was worth in court costs

a hard lesson to learn, never EVER trust the government

I am against the legalization of pot. That said, I don’t support this behavior.

Our government is making very odd noises about pot legality. The Feds say it’s illegal, but then they don’t enforce, but then they do, then they give people time, then they negotiate, they makes statements like the one listed above about not seizing, then they do, and the states pass various laws, and the Feds say they won’t respect them, but people are smoking openly at concerts and parties and bus stops and no one seems to do anything.

A law must be clear and unambiguous, or it is not just.
