  1. Just watched the Oakland Police stormtroopers attack peaceful protesters. Its disgusting what these corrupt thugs will do to fellow americans.

  2. Hey Paul, I think its better putting your most recent article on the front page of the website. Having to hunt for superior news articles is tough enough! And thanks for your previous responses to my earlier posts. I read everypersons comments. But facts are the best.

  3. The U.S. attorneys for Sacramento, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego revealed enforcement actions against at least 16 cannabis distributors in those federal districts. Deputy Attorney General James Cole said the department will not focus the investigation on individual patients with serious illnesses like cancer or their immediate caregivers.
    Lynnette Shaw, owner of the Marian Alliance for Medical Marijuana, which calls itself the oldest medical marijuana dispensary in the state, said her landlord is planning to evict the business from the premises, though Shaw is hoping to obtain a court order or even an executive order that would bring a temporary stay on the U.S. Attorneys’ actions.
    Shaw said she has obeyed all state laws for 15 years and never diverted medicine for non-medical purposes or sold out of state.
    But she and her landlord, who she has been supportive since the time the clinic launched, are fearful of the Justice Department’s threats.
    “My landlord is terrified, I would never do anything to endanger him,” Shaw said. “Now he’s asked us to remove marijuana from premises.”
    On Tuesday, state and local legislators gathered with clinic owners in San Francisco prior to President Obama’s fundraiser event, calling on the president to intervene.
    “This destructive attack on medical marijuana patients is a waste of limited law enforcement resources and will cost the state millions in tax revenue and harm countless lives,” California Assemblyman Tom Ammiano said. “President Obama needs to reverse this bad policy decision and respect California’s right to provide medicine to its residents.”

  4. A special note about the White House “We the People” petition site: Marijuana was overwhelmingly the most popular topic with well over 150,000+ votes.

  5. Online Debate — US News & World Report: “Should federal authorities be able to close medical marijuana dispensaries in California?”
