Matthew Davies Facing Fifteen Years in Federal Prison for Stockton Dispensary

US Attorney Benjamin Wagner is seeking a mandatory minimum five years federal prison for Matthew Davies, a 34-year-old Stockton father of two who operated a dispensary there since 2009. Davies has no criminal record, and set the dispensary up as a lawful entity in the state of California, which has immunized medical pot growers and collectives. He holds a master’s degree in business, paid state and local sales taxes, and employed 75 people.

As the New York Times reveals today, a break-in at Davies’ pot-growing warehouse led to police attention, and eventually a federal raid that netted 1,962 pot plants and 200 pounds of bud. Davies was indicted on his wife’s birthday.
