Obama Keeps Promise to End DEA Raids on California Medical marijuana dispenseries
According to this articles in the LA Times, the DEA will (for the time being) discontinue its raids on California Medical Marijuana Dispensaries. It is about time, but as the article points out, our country still has much to do in regards to reform of its drug laws. Too long have we put our children in jail to fend for themselves with hardened criminals. How many rapists must be set free to make room for the tens of thousands of non-violent drug offenders who are serving years in our prisons for no more than the possession of a little grass?
Also, more good news for civil rights--the City of Palm Springs has just approved a plan for the opening of two medical marijuana centers. See the article here.
