San Francisco District Attorney Gascón: Medical Pot Sales Are Illegal

San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón issued a memo this month stating that all of San Francisco’s permitted dispensaries are illegally selling marijuana. Could such a position jeopardize safe access to medical cannabis at the epicenter of the movement?

“Yes,” said David Goldman, a medical cannabis patient and leading member of Americans for Safe Access in San Francisco. “It doesn’t look good. It severely jeopardizes safe access.”

A PDF of the memo from Gascón’s office began circulating last weekend. Gascon’s office filed the memo in San Francisco County Superior Court in a case against a medical cannabis dispensary that delivered the anti-nausea drug to a collective member.
