The Ravalli County prosecutor says the owners of a Stevensville marijuana growing operation raided in July will face four felony charges. The partners who ran Banana Belt Caregivers are due in court Jan. 13 to answer to charges including drug production, distribution and possession with the intent to distribute.

On July 20, Ravalli County sheriff’s deputies seized evidence at the growing facility. Banana Belt was claiming to be a “provider” under the state of Montana’s new marijuana law, the passage of which has seen the number of providers drop more than 10-fold since March.

Montana’s medical marijuana industry has been in disarray since then, when federal agents raided dozens of businesses, warehouse and provider homes and seized guns and cash.
