Last month, we brought you the story of a Montrose man selling medicinal marijuana out of his home... last week, he was told he had to get out of the house.
Bill Hewitt was told by the United States Department of Housing he had to move out of his house on South Fifth Street by March 31st.
He thought it was OK to sell medicinal marijuana out of his home because he had a permit to possess the drug from the state.
However, the house he lives in is paid for by the Department of Housing, and because drug possession is still a federal offense, he broke the terms of his agreement with the Department.
He started the business THC with TLC last month and turned the home into a weed-growing facility.
Hewitt spent nearly $11,000 on six plants, and if he gets moved out the plants have little chance of surviving.
"I'm not giving up!" says Hewitt. He is writing a letter to President Barack Obama to ask for support in his ordeal.
"I believe my hero... my President will save me."
Unless something drastic happens soon, Hewitt says there is a good chance he and his children will end up homeless.
