A deep dive into the costs of raiding marijuana facilities

As mentioned repeatedly in recent posts, students in my Marijuana Law, Policy & Reform seminar are making presentations on marijuana-related topics of their choosing. One of the planned student presentations for this week will be exploring the "costs of raids" with "examples from states including Utah, California, and Colorado."  Here is an impressive array of materials/links that the student working on this topic has provided for class consideration:

"The High Cost of Shutting Down One Medical Marijuana Operation"
