San Diego Mayor Bob Filner Comes Out Swinging for Medical Marijuana

“Elections have consequences,” the saying goes, and the city of San Diego narrowly elected former Congressman and medical marijuana ally Bob Filner in November.

Now, Filner’s coming out swinging against San Diego’s persecution of medical cannabis patients and their providers. City officials working with the federal government have closed hundreds of dispensaries in the area over the past fifteen months and denied medical pot providers legal defenses guaranteed to them under the California constitution.

“With the support of people like Safe Access I was elected Mayor of San Diego and I thank you,” Filner told Americans for Safe Access San Diego this week.
