ASA Peaceful Protest / Rally:HARM Medical Marijuana Eradication Seminar

In Prohibition Clan on November 12, 2009 at 6:11 pm

ASA protested today to educate HARM and the public about the AMA recognized medical benefits of medical cannabis and the harmful effects this seminar is causing to San Diego County.

Just yesterday, on 11/10/09 the largest physician-based group in the country, the American Medial Association (AMA), voted to reverse its long-held position that marijuana has no medical value and now says botanical-cannabis should NOT be a Federal Schedule I controlled substance!

Now today, on 11/12/09 HARM, a local San Diego County funded group whose goal is to decrease, “through eradication”, the accessibility of medical marijuana and is holding this seminar for city and county employees, on city and county time and on OUR last dollar.  HARM has become harmful financially to the county and socially to the local community through the efforts to deny safe access in San Diego County.

Prop 215 and The Compassionate Use Act of 2006 are protected by law.  HARM is now placing the county in harms way by encouraging county officials to violate the California Constitution, by providing Martin J Mayer, general counsel to the California Police Chiefs and Sheriff’s associations.  Mayer will be advising public employees and policymakers on how to ban medical marijuana in the county and how to circumvent the will of San Diego voters.

California Constitution Article 3, Section 3.5 (c):

 “An administrative agency, including an administrative agency created by the Constitution or an initiative statute, has no power:  “To declare a statute unenforceable, or to refuse to enforce a statute on the basis that federal law or federal regulations prohibit the enforcement of such statute” unless an appellate court has made a determination that the enforcement of such statute is prohibited by federal law or federal regulations.”  (Source:

 ASA finds it vital to inform the public that our local officials have moved far beyond attacking what they claim to be “drug dealers” to now explicitly working against the public interest in direct violation of the California Constitution. 

This is not just a medical marijuana issue; it’s also violating your of rights as a voter in this state.  If you let them violate the medical marijuana community today, the will surely violate you.

We encourage you to take the time to research this issue beyond the political media spin be the county prohibitionists.  Several resources to assist in your efforts are listed below.
