Medical marijuana provider raided

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) -- Authorities say they have executed a search warrant at a medical marijuana provider in Missoula on the belief the business was illegally selling dangerous drugs.

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) -- Authorities say they have executed a search warrant at a medical marijuana provider in Missoula on the belief the business was illegally selling dangerous drugs.

Rick Rosio, president of Montana Pain Management, told the Missoulian the search late Thursday afternoon was a sort of "compliance check" and says officers sought patient and financial files.

But Missoula County Attorney Fred Van Valkenburg says authorities believe the business was illegally selling drugs, and "a search warrant is not a compliance check."

About 10 people work at Montana Pain Management, which serves about 300 patients.

State law allows caregivers to grow up to six plants for each of their patients, and patients to grow up to six plants for themselves. If a caregiver is a patient, he or she can grow an additional six plants.
