Stand With Richard Lee: Tell Obama to End the Medical Marijuana Raids

Richard Lee Speaking at a NORML Conference
Earlier this week, agents with the U.S. Marshals Service, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Internal Revenue Service raided several properties owned by longtime marijuana law reform advocate Richard Lee. Richard has devoted over a million dollars of his own money and countless hours of his life to championing Proposition 19 and marijuana legalization in California, to say nothing of all the time and passion he has poured into helping revitalize his community of Downtown Oakland, can you give him just a minute of your time and sign his petition to President Obama?

From Richard Lee:

On Monday, April 2, my school — Oaksterdam University in Oakland — was raided by the DEA, IRS, and US Marshals. Oaksterdam provides training to the medical cannabis industry, and is fully compliant with state and local law.

President Obama promised at the beginning of his administration to respect state medical marijuana laws. He has broken this promise time and time again — and the consequences have been devastating.

This was a senseless act of intimidation. But I’ve been an activist far too long to become intimidated — and with the majority of Americans and common sense on our side, I know this is a fight we can win.

With our government trillions in debt, why is our government using taxpayer dollars to come after me, Oaksterdam, and the thousands of patients who need medical marijuana just to get through the day?

Tell President Obama and the DEA: Enough is enough. Keep your campaign promise, and stop the raids on the medical cannabis industry!

  1. If we can’t receive our freedom, than we may have to take them like before. Business as usual. I’d rather think that we have moved on to be more grown up than this. Are not their continence up to reality?

  2. A Democratic House will vote on a bill introduced to reduce the schedule of marijuana.
    Vote Democrat in 2012 to further our cause.

  3. I spread the word as much as I possibly could. Even posted a bunch on CNN boards about it. But we are still short of the 25,000 mark by about 3,000. How can we get the rest?????

  4. He has proven he has no interest in this cause, your petition will fall on deaf ears just like the “We the People” questions were ignored.

  5. We made 25,000. I really hope someone takes our names and makes the best of this petition. Please don’t let it just be ignored after reaching the goal.
