LOS ANGELES: Stop the Federal Attack on Medical Marijuana!

Category: Events | Posted on Wed, October, 19th 2011 by THCFinder

An attack on safe access is an attack on patients!
Join Americans for Safe Access (ASA) and a statewide coalition on Monday, October 24, for a peaceful protest at the Federal Building in downtown Los Angeles to protest the Obama Administration’s new attack on medical cannabis patients and property owners! Then march two blocks to Los Angeles City Hall to join the Occupy LA protest and visit City Council offices to oppose plans to ban medical cannabis cooperatives and collectives in the city.

What:  Peaceful Protest Against the Federal Attack on Safe Access

When:  12:00 PM * Monday, October 24, 2011

Where:  Edward R. Roybal Federal Building (Downtown), 255 E. Temple Street, Los Angeles, CA 90006. Between N. Los Angeles St. and N. Alameda St.

Info:  don@safeaccessnow.org

Bring:  Friends, signs, banners, horns, drums, bells, sunscreen, water, etc.!

The peaceful protest will begin with a press conference at noon. Anna Boyce, a Registered Nurse and co-author of California's Proposition 215 will speak. Ms. Boyce will be asking for a meeting with President Obama and calling for an end to the federal attacks. Other speakers will be announced soon.

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) announced a major attack on medical cannabis patients’ access to medicine last week. The DOJ says medical cannabis patients’ cooperatives and collectives in California are illegal, and ordered them to close within forty five days. The DOJ also dusted off and old Bush-era tactic, sending letters threatening property owners who rent to medical cannabis tenants with prosecution and asset forfeiture. Most of California’s legal medical cannabis patients rely on cooperatives and collectives for safe access to the medicine they need to treat the symptoms of cancer, HIV/AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, chronic pain, and other serious conditions. Tell President Obama and the DOJ to stop the federal attack on safe access and to support a change in federal law!
