Medical marijuana lawyer files complaint on raid - The Denver Post

Medical marijuana lawyer files complaint on raid - The Denver Post
DENVER—Colorado's top federal drug agent is defending his decision to raid a suburban house where marijuana was being grown but said he has no plans to start cracking down on the hundreds of medical marijuana dispensaries that have popped up around the state.

Jeffrey Sweetin, Denver's Drug Enforcement Administration special agent, said agents removed over 120 marijuana plants from the Highlands Ranch home of Chris Bartkowicz on Friday.

Sweetin said agents learned about the operation after seeing a story on KUSA-TV's Web site about Bartkowicz and becoming suspicious, partly because he said he would like to earn around $400,000 a year from selling marijuana.

Did Sweetin ever stop and think about the income tax that man would pay if he earned 400,000 dollars. I think Sweetin needs to be fired.
