A resolution calling for change to federal policy is on the agenda at this weekend's annual mayors meeting
LAS VEGAS, NV — As mayors from across the country gather today in Las Vegas for the 81st annual U.S. Conference of Mayors, the federal government’s crackdown on medical marijuana is expected to be discussed and debated over the weekend.
A resolution ”in support of states setting their own marijuana policies without federal interference” was introduced in advance of the conference by San Diego Mayor Bob Filner and co-sponsored by eight other mayors from across the country. Deliberation on the resolution comes days after medical marijuana advocates issued an alarming report detailing how the Obama Justice Department has spent nearly $300 million to undermine medical marijuana laws in the U.S.

“Ultimately, this is about whether local and state governments can develop, adopt, and implement public health laws without heavy-handed interference by the federal government,” said Steph Sherer, Executive Director of Americans for Safe Access, which authored “What’s the Cost?”, an extensive report issued last week on the economic and social costs of the federal government’s war on medical marijuana.
“This resolution is emblematic of the frustration experienced by local and state officials, which will continue until the federal government ends its attacks on medical marijuana.” More than 100 million people, or 34 percent of Americans, currently live in states with medical marijuana laws.

On June 6, Ray Martin McFeters, 73, was charged in Aitkin County District Court with distribution or possession of more than 42.5 grams of marijuana and failure to attach tax stamps to the marijuana.
McFeters is also charged with felony possession of “not a small amount of marijuana” as stated in the criminal complaint filed with the Aitkin County District Court.
McFeters is a retired computer programmer who lives with his wife Patty on the north shore of Mille Lacs Lake. He learned to write code while serving four years with the United States Air Force in crypto maintenance during the Cuban missile crisis. He was honorably discharged in 1964.
“Yeah, I grew a few plants,” McFeters said. “I thought I was doing good by not supporting the cartels and everything like that.”
According to the complaint, McFeters had 22 marijuana plants in various stages of growth.
Aitkin County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Guida first heard there was a marijuana grow at the McFeters’ residence in early 2013 through an anonymous tip. According to the complaint, Guida stopped by the house several times but never found anyone home. On April 13, Guida stated that he saw fresh tracks in the snow near McFeter’s mailbox.
