Tom Ammiano: Justice Department Has Gone Rogue

Strong words from the assemblyman in yesterday’s Chron, in response to the four U.S. Attorneys in California who have caused the closure of five permitted dispensaries in San Francisco, plus one in Fairfax. Ammiano also argues the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and mayor need to be more vociferous: “We cannot allow the wholesale dismantling of medical marijuana in the state by a rogue Department of Justice,” he said.

Meanwhile, over in Arizona, the first state cannabis center is scheduled to open this week, and in Colorado, where a for-profit medical industry includes over 800 centers, anti-prohibition forces must gather a few more good signatures to get their adult use initiative on the ballot.
