After previously giving us a false sense of security, the Obama administration now continues to ignore state laws and raid medical cannabis patients and facilities, while creating new ways to marginalize our community, including issues related to patient privacy, access, banking, taxation, and threats of filing suit against state employees who participate in upholding state law.
In addition, Bonnie Dumanis the San Diego District Attorney and Mayoral Candidate continues to wage her fierce fight against Proposition 215 and medical marijuana patients through vindictive prosecutions and continued swat style raids on patient homes and dispensing centers in collaboration with the DEA.
This community is still under attack!
Just this week, our community saw raids in Washington State and right here in San Diego County and on Monday, our community will lose two more of our brothers and sisters to the failed war on drugs. Dale Shafer and Dr. Mollie fry will turn themselves over to federal agents to serve five-year mandatory minimum sentences for legally participating in state sanctioned medical cannabis programs.
Enough is enough and Monday, May 2, 2011 is our time to take stand against federal interference, join activists in San Diego and cities across the country. Locations include, but are not limited to, the following areas: Washington State, Oregon, Rhode Island, Colorado, Montana, Michigan, Maine, New Jersey, Washington, DC, California, Arizona, Nevada, and Maryland. To find out what is going on in your area, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or print out theCease and Desist Order and take it to a local DEA Office or Federal Building near you on Monday!!
Remember: if you don’t stand up for safe access, who will?
Special Patients’ Rights Rallies will be occurring in both Washington, DC outside of the Department of Justice at 12pm EST (event flyer) and outside of the Federal Courthouse in Sacramento, CA at 12pm PST for Dale Schafer and Dr. Mollie Fry (event flyer).
It’s thanks to the support from our members that ASA is able to hold Days of Action like this one. Please consider making a donation to ASA today, so we can continue to strengthen our fight for safe access.
