Colo. medical marijuana dispensaries join union
WHEAT RIDGE, Colo.Colorado medical marijuana dispensaries are getting a boost in political clout after they joined the United Food and Commercial Workers Union.

The U.S. Justice Department has warned that marijuana dispensaries and licensed growers in states with medical marijuana laws could face prosecution for violating federal drug and money-laundering laws, which union members are vowing to fight.

Daniel J. Rush, a national marijuana dispensary organizer for the union, said dispensary owners are at war with the U.S. Justice Department in California over the issue, and he believes the unions can help them.
