Congress questions Dispensary Raids
A letter from House members was sent to President Obama, expressing their concerns over the recent crack down and raids on medical marijuana dispensaries.
Several members of California's Congressional delegation are taking their concerns about a federal crackdown on the state's medical marijuana dispensaries directly to President Obama.
In a bipartisan letter signed by nine members of the U.S. House of Representatives, the lawmakers criticized what they called an "unconscionable" multi-state effort targeting medical marijuana dispensaries. They also called for the reclassification of marijuana as a controlled substance subject to fewer federal restrictions.
"It is critically important for patients to have safe access to this treatment that continues to be recommended by doctors. California voters decided to adopt clear regulations to allow patients to do just that. It is unfortunate that the federal government has decided to target these legal vendors instead of focusing limited resources on those who sell illicit drugs," said Rep. Sam Farr, D-Carmel.
