MPP Email

I receive email updates from the Marijuana Policy Project. Today I received an interesting one that seems to put a blemish on Obama's directive to stop harassing people for following state marijuana laws. Here is the email:

Yesterday, armed DEA agents stormed into Emmalyn's California Cannabis Clinic, a licensed medical marijuana facility in San Francisco. We have very few details at this point but MPP is concerned that the DEA may be testing the resolve of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who recently announced a major shift in U.S. medical marijuana policy.

Please contact President Obama and demand an explanation for this Bush-era DEA raid!

According to a vague statement released by the DEA last night, this collective was not complying with state law and therefore wasn’t subject to the recent policy change.

However, the San Francisco Department of Public Health has issued a conditional permit to the collective, which was actively working with the city to obtain a permanent license. And, it appears that the San Francisco Police Department was not even notified of the raid or the alleged violation of state law.

To our knowledge, nobody has been arrested as of press time. MPP is still looking into this situation and will post any new developments on our blog.

Please don't forget to forward this alert to your friends and family so that they too can demand an explanation for this recent federal attack on medical marijuana.

Thank you for supporting MPP and taking action to protect medical marijuana patients and providers.
