Obama Sends Man Working In Legal Marijuana Clinic To Prison

"Monday afternoon, Robert Duncan [reported] to Mendota Federal Prison in Fresno, Calif., to begin a two-year prison sentence," Reason notes.

"His crime? Working for a medical marijuana business that was legal under California state law. Not owning it; not profiting from illegal sales. Merely for being employed by the business.

"The collective of dispensaries Duncan worked for, known as MediZen, was raided by federal authorities in 2011 during a crackdown on medical marijuana providers by the Obama administration."

Here's Duncan discussing his case with HuffPost Live.
