WARNING REGARDING FEDERAL LAW
The Company expressly acknowledges that the possession, distribution, and manufacturing of marijuana is illegal under federal law, regardless of state law which may decriminalize such activity. Federal penalties for violating the federal Controlled Substances Act (the “CSA”) are serious and can include criminal penalties of up to 20 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $2,000,000. 21 U.S.C. § 841. In addition, the federal government may seize, and seek the civil forfeiture of, any real or personal property used to facilitate the sale of marijuana, as well as the money or other proceeds from the sale. 21 U.S.C. § 881. Although the U.S. Department of Justice has noted that an effective state regulatory system, and compliance with such a system, should be considered in the exercise of investigative and prosecutorial discretion, its authority to prosecute violations of the CSA is not diminished by the passage of state laws which may permit such activity.
