California Attorney General Responds to Feds Assault on Medical Marijuana
California's top attorney, Kamala Harris, is asking that federal attorneys scale back their recent assault on medical marijuana dispensaries, reports the Washington Post.
Harris' statement comes weeks after U.S. prosecutors sent letters to landlords who rent to dispensary owners, warning them that their property could be confiscated if pot-operations are occurring on their property.
While Harris admitted that the law has problems that will need to be resolved, either in the courts or in Sacramento, she also said the recent crackdown would only hurt patients.
Harris said the “overly broad federal enforcement campaign will make it more difficult for legitimate patients to access physician-recommended medicine in California."
