"The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is on the verge of shutting down California’s largest medical marijuana dispensary, and with it potentially the entire semi-legal pot industry. The Harborside Health Center in Oakland -- which was going to be the subject of a Discovery Channel reality show called Weed Wars -- now owes the IRS $2.5 million in back taxes, thanks to the recent enforcement of a federal law that prohibits organizations that traffic in 'controlled substances' from taking tax deductions." [editor's note; It would indeed be ironic if this became the real battleground for saving the 10th Amendment - SAT] (10/05/11)
