Americans for Safe Access has coordinated nationwide protests today to "remind Obama of his broken campaign promises regarding medical marijuana in places where it is legal at the state level." The press release states:
In solidarity with the over 1 million medical marijuana patients across the nation, activists will be pushing the message that patients as well as their families and friends are voters too, and that this is a vital issue for them when they go to the polls in November. Obama is the current POTUS and can stop this unprecedented federal crackdown even before the election.
Many protests are planned at Obama For America headquarters, while here in Oregon, they are planned for the federal courthouses in Medford, Eugene and Pendleton. Oregonians are protesting the raids that have occurred in the last three weeks, in particular: Kannabosm, the 45th Parallel and High Hopes Farm.
