Nationwide Protests Decry DEA Medical Cannabis Raids

Over two hundred medical marijuana patients and advocates protested DEA raids on 13 medical marijuana dispensaries outside the Federal Building in San Diego today, and further protests are planned in fourteen other cities nationwide at 12 noon TODAY, Wednesday, Dec. 14.
While the DEA was hearing testimony Monday that the federal government should not continue its monopoly on medical marijuana cultivation, federal raids on confidential medical records closed down most dispensaries in San Diego.

“The federal government, while claiming that they are not targeting patients, have cut off safe access to medical marijuana for thousands of sick and dying in the region,” said Steph Sherer, director of the medical marijuana advocacy group, Americans for Safe Access. “How can this administration be so out of step with both science and public opinion?”
