“We don’t worry about this,” the manager said of the federal offensive, declining to give his name. “It’s between the lawyers.”
David Welch, a lawyer who is representing 15 of the 71 dispensaries and who is involved in a lawsuit challenging a ban at the State Supreme Court, said the federal clampdown would fail.
