(Newser) – Two Montana businesses legally providing medical marijuana in Billings have been firebombed in two days. The attackers—who could face up to 20 years in prison on felony arson charges if caught and convicted—also spray painted "Not In Our Town" across the front of the operations. Police have stepped up patrols around marijuana dispensaries ahead of what is expected to be a heated town meeting to discuss a moratorium on new medical marijuana outlets, the Billings Gazette reports.
