The owner of Rimrock Auto Group and the new Mercedes Benz dealership in Billings, Steve Zabawa, has reportedly spent $20,000 to run anti-medical cannabis ads throughout next week. When he isn’t hiring inexpensive employees from the Alpha House or refusing to honor contractual obligations, Zabawa can typically be found in Helena testifying that his dealerships have been vandalized by medical marijuana addicts. Brother Zabawa, as he is affectionately known in his Mormon circles, believes that blessings stem from obedience. Apparently he believes we need to obey him.
Steve Zabawa has a handful of card- holding employees. The puritanical prohibitionist Mormon anti-medical marijuana activist apparently wants to revoke his general manager’s right to legally provide cannabis to his wife who is suffering from terminal bone cancer. Sounds like a great guy to me. I guess it isn’t any wonder that the dealership has been plagued by a string of lawsuits by customers, employees, and business contacts. The secret service has been investigating the dealership and rumors of mob connections and shady deals have circulated for as long as Zabawa, the obedient Mormon; has owned the dealership.
I would suggest that anyone who is concerned about the government overstepping its bounds by trampling on laws made by the state’s citizens should be donating to the MMGA. The industry needs to counter the propaganda.
