Americans for Safe Access, a medical marijuana advocacy group, is calling for rallies in 15 cities and eight states on Thursday to protest Department of Justice attacks on the MMJ industry, ASA said Wednesday.
Protesters will gather at Obama's Tucson office, 4639 E. 1st Street, at 5 p.m. today to presumably wave signs, shout and generally chastise the Choomer in Chief for shutting down some very respectable and successful businesses in MMJ states in recent years. Rallies are also planned for Phoenix, Denver, Seattle, San Diego, Oakland and Washington, D.C.
"Over the past three years, the DOJ has conducted more than 200 SWAT-style federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) raids on legitimate medical marijuana businesses in at least 6 states - at twice the rate under the Bush Administration - and indicted more than 70 related to medical marijuana," the ASA said in a news release.
So bring a sign to wave and tell the prez what you think. Mr. Smith plans to attend. See you there.
