HELENA — A medical marijuana provider indicted on federal drug charges is warning other caregivers to shut down their businesses or they'll be next.
Jason Burns of Helena says that federal agents told him before his arraignment Thursday that the Department of Justice plans to indict every Montana caregiver raided this spring.
U.S. Attorney spokeswoman Jessica Fehr says she cannot comment on whether criminal charges are pending against other providers.
Queen City Caregivers, operated by Burns and Jesse Leland, was among more than two dozen medical marijuana providers raided in March and April. They and Josh Schultz, owner of Natural Medicine, are the first to be indicted on criminal charges related to those raids.
