Big banks are laundering money and profiting from the protection they receive from the upper level CIA and DEA heads. The war is waged upon the small time dealer and operatives that are deemed expendable.

Many dispensaries have been raided, targeting their distribution of marijuana and challenging their authority to rise into legitimate business.
