Marijuana Eradication Protests Today in San Diego

Each year the Campaign Against Marijuana Planting spends millions of dollars flying around Northern California and weeding illegal marijuana gardens. This week, they plan their 2010 CAMP in sunny, lovely San Diego at the U.S. Grant Hotel, except they’ll be joined by protesters from the Marijuana Policy Project. The policy project says the 27 year-old eradication program has inarguably failed to achieve it stated goal: reducing marijuana use and availability by eradicating illegal grow sites. “It’s time to stop this insanity of repeating the futile exercise of CAMP and instead replace marijuana prohibition with a system of taxation and regulation,” stated Aaron Smith, California policy director for the policy project, leading Monday’s press conference.
