    Lynette Shaw gestures outside the Federal building Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012, in Oakland, Calif. Shaw, 15 year owner/operator of the now closed Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana is asking for a protective injunction to halt the actions of the recent DOJ crackdown on medical cannabis dispensaries.  Ms. Shaw is the lead plaintiff in a Federal lawsuit filed in all 4 District Courts against Eric Holder, the DEA and the DOJ, on behalf of California patients and their regulated collectives. Residents and local officials in Mendocino County, the redwood and weed-rich territory that occupies one leg of California's fabled Emerald Triangle, thought they had reached detente in the ongoing clash between pot growers and law enforcement when the sheriff agreed to stop raiding medical marijuana producers who paid to have their crops inspected and tagged. But under threat of legal action by federal officials, Mendocino lawmakers have abandoned the novel permitting program. The action has refocused attention on the far-reaching consequences of the coordinated crackdown on California's medical marijuana industry launched four months ago. (AP Photo/Ben Margot)

    A Feb. 10, 2012 photo shows medical marijuana growing in a Matthew Huron owned grow house in Denver. Medical marijuana is legal in 17 states, but the industry has a decidedly black-market aspect _ it's mostly cash-only. In Colorado, state lawmakers are attempting an end-run around the federal ban by creating a cooperative financial institution for state dispensaries and growers to allow them to store and borrow money.

    A Feb. 10, 2012 photo shows Matthew Huron, owner of two medical marijuana dispensaries and an edible marijuana company in Denver, examining a marijuana plant in his grow house. Medical marijuana is legal in 17 states, but the industry has a decidedly black-market aspect _ it's mostly cash-only. That's because banks won't touch pot money. The drug is illegal under federal law, and processing transactions or investments with pot money puts federally insured banks at risk of drug-racketeering charges. In Colorado, state lawmakers are attempting an end-run around the federal ban by creating a cooperative financial institution for state dispensaries and growers to allow them to store and borrow money.
