WASHINGTON: Juliana Plemitscher says she wouldn’t normally join a public protest against marijuana laws outside the federal building.
But after federal agents raided the medical marijuana dispensary where she goes to get medicine for her epilepsy, she felt stirred to action Wednesday. She joined 30 others outside the federal building on Second Avenue, holding signs to protest the federal government’s hard stance on marijuana.
Plemitscher thinks she missed the federal agents who raided the Seattle Cross dispensary on Capitol Hill on Tuesday by about 20 minutes. Employees told her it was closed when she arrived.
