Colorado medical marijuana dispensaries are getting a boost in political clout after they joined the United Food and Commercial Workers Union. The U.S. Justice Department has warned that marijuana dispensaries and licensed growers in states with medical marijuana laws could face prosecution for violating federal drug and money laundering laws, which union members are vowing to fight. Dispensary representatives said Monday that they believe medical marijuana is part of the retail health care, agriculture, and food processing industry. "Our union has over 100 years' experience representing these very types of workers. We intend for our collective bargaining agreements to serve as a first line of regulation in the communities our members work in, and we are proud to do it," said Kim Cordova, president of the UFCW Local 7. The union chapter has about 25,000 members in Colorado and Wyoming representing grocery, pharmacy, agriculture workers, food processors, meat cutters, textile workers, and health care workers. - The Denver Post - Brittany Weaver pictured
