The Patient Care Association of California, a group of marijuana collectives and cooperatives formed in mid-2011 to combat the medical marijuana ordinance passed by the City of San Diego, is promoting a fund raiser in support of Bob Filner’s mayoral campaign.

Scheduled for April 6 in Coronado, a promotional flyer for the event sent out by e-mail suggests a $50 donation at the door, though an attached pledge form encourages donations ranging from $100 to $1,000.

Filner has been a vocal supporter of the medical marijuana cause – see past Reader coverage here and here

A request for comment and further info from Patient Care Association went unanswered.

Something tells me that this ain't gonna help Bob with the oldsters in town. I doubt that many of them know of his prior support for legal weed. On the whole, I'd guess this is not one of his more astute moves.

I disagree, do not underestimate how worldly old people can be. They are still full of surprises.
