California Dems Say “No!” to Medical Marijuana Crackdown, Federal Interference in CO, WA

California Democrats say no to Federal interference in WA and CO marijuana law

CALIFORNIA: SoCal activist Lanny Swerdlow recently notified us that the California Democratic Party passed two historic resolutions on the issue of marijuana at its Executive Board meeting in Costa Mesa on Sunday, July 21.

“The first resolution called on President Obama to (1) respect the voters of Colorado and Washington and to not allow any federal interference in the enactment of their marijuana legalization initiatives, (2) end the federal raids on patients and providers in medical marijuana states and (3) appoint a commission to look into the reform of our nation’s marijuana laws.

“The 2nd resolution calls on our state legislature to enact statewide guidelines for medical marijuana distribution that respects the rights of local municipalities to regulate and license but will also provide marijuana ‘to all patients in all areas of California, rural as well as urban.’

“These are now official positions of the party and add another level of mainstream approval for medical marijuana and marijuana law reform – approval that will hold us in especially good stead when speaking with Democratic elected officials and candidates,” Swerdlow wrote.

US Attorney General Eric Holder has never said how the feds will respond to Colorado and Washington ending pot prohibition.
