Reader publisher makes in-kind advertising contribution to medical marijuana campaign

Jim Holman, owner and publisher of the San Diego Reader, has contributed advertising valued at $2,831 to Citizens for Patient Rights, sponsored by the "Patient Care Association, an association of medicinal cannabis patients and patient organizations," according to the group's most recent disclosure report, filed late yesterday and posted online by the county Registrar of Voters.

The committee is backing ballot campaigns in the cities of Lemon Grove (Prop T), Solana Beach (Prop W), Del Mar (Prop H), and Imperial Beach (Prop S) to variously liberalize regulation of medical marijuana.

"These seem like very middle-of-the-road measures to me," said Holman during a telephone interview earlier today.

U-T San Diego, the daily newspaper and online operation owned by hotel mogul Doug Manchester, offered another opinion in an editorial last week.

"Voters in those cities need only to look at their big neighbor, San Diego, to see what the future would hold: parents constantly concerned about the proximity of marijuana dispensaries to schools and other places where children gather, even if the dispensaries are within the designated areas; police and sheriff’s deputies concerned about dispensaries attracting crime, no matter where they’re located; the U.S. Attorney’s Office, which, no matter what local law might say, is mandated to uphold federal law that says growing, selling, distributing or even using marijuana – for any reason – is illegal."

This year's local medical marijuana debate has cut across traditional party lines, with Obama administration U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy backing the San Diego mayoral campaign of Republican City Councilman Carl DeMaio, also supported by Manchester, against Democratic congressman Bob Filner, who favors a less restrictive ordinance in the city.

“I want to make sure [medical marijuana is] available for those who are suffering from illness but that neighbors are protected, kids are protected from any use or recreational use,” Filner told the U-T in September. “I think you can do both. You have to have an ordinance which, unlike the one the council passed, allows them to occur but be regulated. And I think it was far too restrictive.”

Filner has also challenged Duffy's get-tough enforcement actions against the My Mother Earth Co-op .
