HAILEY, Idaho: A marijuana activist who successfully lobbied for Haily residents to pass two marijuana initiatives in 2007 and 2008, claims to have received $30,000 from a national marijuana group that allegedly backed out of funding his efforts. Ryan Davidson won a $60,000 grant from the Washington D.C. based Marijuana Policy Project, but the group withdrew the cash after Davidson met resistance with local communities. Although the Idaho Supreme Court later approved his initiatives, the group still refused to cooperate, according to Davidson.[1]

Despite the victory in court, Davidson's marijuana initiatives have subsequently been thrown out in court.
