HELENA, Mont. (AP) — When federal agents raided 26 Montana medical marijuana provider homes, businesses and warehouses in March 2011, prominent among those targeted were the owners of Montana Cannabis.
The four partners were Richard Flor, Chris Lindsey, Tom Daubert and Chris Williams. They ran one of the state's largest pot businesses, with more than 300 registered customers.
Those four partners, like the industry, have faced grim times 18 months after the raids.
Flor died in custody on Aug. 29.
Daubert, a lobbyist who helped draft Montana's 2004 voter-approved medical marijuana law, got probation on a charge of conspiracy to maintain a drug-involved premises.
Lindsey has pleaded guilty to the same charge.
The only one to not cut a deal with the government is Williams. He faces trial on Sept. 24.
