US Attorney to Border Patrol - No More Small Possession Cases
By Paul Richmond
My Medical Marijuana client was detained and charged by the U.S. Border Patrol at one of the new checkpoints on the Olympic Peninsula.
I sent a letter pointing out the questionable nature of these under the Fourth Amendment with supporting caselaw.
The U.S. Attorney responded by dropping charges and four others, then issuing a new policy that they wouldn't prosecute "small possession cases."
