Medical Marijuana Advocates To Rally Against DEA

January 05, 2006

, Beyond Chron

Medical marijuana patients, caregivers, and advocates will rally at City Hall today to protest the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA’s) recent raid of the home of the owners of a local medical marijuana co-op.

Last month, the DEA raided the apartment Catherine and Steve Smith’s, who operate the Hopenet Co-Op. Federal officials then tried to raid the co-op itself, despite their lack of a warrant to do so, but were stopped by nearby citizens and members of the co-op. The protest will call on Mayor Gavin Newsom to stand with medical marijuana advocates against federal raids upon pot clubs in San Francisco. The protest will be from 1 pm to 6 pm.
