LEGALIZING MARIJUANA-THE BRAND
SEATTLE — It was Jamen Shively's moment, and his smile was beatific. Sitting next to the former president of Mexico and surrounded by men in nice suits, the former Microsoft manager told a crowd of reporters and supporters who packed into a swanky conference room last month that they were witnessing a unique moment in history: the creation of the first national commercial brand of marijuana. Internal company documents obtained by The Associated Press tell a different story. A draft contract dated the same day as the news conference — May 30 — appears to lay out, in writing, a federal conspiracy to distribute marijuana. Nothing about Shively's business would appear to shield him or others involved from federal prosecution, according to several former federal prosecutors contacted by AP. By Gene Johnson. AP Photos.
