New residents get threat letter after moving to a community!

https://docs.google.com

My family and I recently moved to West Michigan and I just got this letter in the mail. The letter is signed by a handful of local big-shots and law enforcement types. I was more than a little put off by the tone and rhetoric contained in this thinly veiled THREAT to my freedom and property. Not only are they all but promising to separate me from my property and limit my freedoms, but they had the balls to also ask me to sign a "pledge" saying I will obey. The blank pledge card, front and back, is part of the PDF.

Feds threaten states over medical marijuana laws

http://yourlife.usatoday.com

Several U.S. states have started reassessing their medical marijuana laws after stern warnings from the federal government that everyone from licensed growers to regulators could be subjected to prosecution.
