JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri marijuana regulators received a federal grand jury subpoena last fall, almost a year after authorities issued an initial demand for records from the state.

It is unclear whether or how the two subpoenas are related. The first, issued in November 2019, directs the Department of Health and Senior Services to provide “any and all records pertaining to medical marijuana applications” for four individuals. Their names are redacted from the document.

The second subpoena, dated Sept. 9, 2020, requires marijuana regulators to provide records, but what the records pertain to is redacted from the document.

Both subpoenas were issued by the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri.

“Pursuant to an official criminal investigation being conducted by the federal grand jury for the Western District of Missouri, your office has received a subpoena requiring the production of certain records,” said Michael S. Oliver, assistant U.S. Attorney, in a Sept. 9, 2020, letter to the DHSS.

Lisa Cox, spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Senior Services, said the subpoenas were the only two the Section for Medical Marijuana Regulation has received from the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri.

The feds have not identified any targets. [Read More @ The St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
