    So you have no proof but you know it's all a trick?

    And somehow that's supposed to be believable?

    by the way here's some information you either didn't find in huffington or are concealing

    The judge pointed out, partly for the benefit of about 30 people who crowded the courtroom in support of Williams, that the severe sentences originally facing Williams stemmed almost solely from the gun charges, with penalities increasing for each additional weapons charge.

    But all of the many people who wrote Christensen on Williams’ behalf seemed under the impression that he could have been sentenced to 80 years for growing marijuana, the judge said.

    In reality, the mandatory minimum on the charge of possession with intent to distribute marijuana is only five years, said the judge — who sentenced Williams to the 130 days he’s already served on that particular count.

    thus it seems more that that case is less about pot and more about guns

    still we will indeed see how Obama acts but I doubt he's going to contradict himself after going on national tv

      He just didn't say anything. Like I said, no one expects to have Federal troops in the streets doing shakedowns for pipes and half smoked joints.
      There are many other examples of the Feds arresting and seizing assets of marijuana growers and dispensaries because I follow it pretty regularly. I picked the top one off the stack, maybe that one had some more aspects to it. But in the end he got busted over weed growing, not guns, I am willing to bet.
