California friends imprisoned for pot dispensary, seek clemency

Hosted by  • 

President Obama has granted clemency to more than 1300 people. A pair of friends in Modesto hope to get on that list. In 2004, Luke Scarmazzo and Ricardo Montes opened a pot dispensary. Cash poured in, and they paid themselves $13,000 each per month. One of them even posted a music video on YouTube, bragging about his money and flipping off the feds. Then the feds showed up. The friends were found guilty of running a criminal enterprise and sentenced to 20 years in prison.
