Should California’s marijuana customers be worried about the federal government charging them with a crime?

That’s the provocative question a reader asked us after we published Pot 101, an article that outlines what you can and can’t legally do under the state’s recreational marijuana law, Proposition 64.

The reader, who requested that we not use her name, said she was asked to submit a copy of her photo ID to complete a marijuana purchase online, through a retail dispensary.

She was concerned her information, and that of all customers, could be obtained by the federal government should the dispensary ever be shut down.

The short answer to her question is: Yes. Federal law still classifies marijuana as an illegal drug and there are no current protections for recreational customers.
