California #USAttorney & #Marijuana Warrior Melinda Haag Retires

The U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California, Melinda Haag, announced that she was stepping down on September 1.  Haag was known for her zealous prosecution of licensed California medical cannabis businesses. She was behind the notorious raid on Oaksterdam University, and the hounding of its founder, marijuana activist Richard Lee.

Because state-licensed cannabis business is conducted out in the open, busting dispensaries is not exactly heavy lifting for Haag’s office. Haag used the full weight of US criminal and tax laws to go after licensed cannabis businesses. Let’s hope her departure means a change in federal policy.
