A group of cannabis advocates intend to call out Dianne Feinstein’s opposition against marijuana law reform by hand-delivering the senator a petition signed by thousands of Californians.
Representatives from the Drug Policy Alliance, Americans for Safe Access, Berkeley Patients Group, Harborside Health Center, and CANORML are teaming up at Sen. Feinstein’s San Francisco office on Tuesday to present her with over 11,000 signatures urging Feinstein to finally support cannabis legalization.
Despite a long history of supporting the War on Drugs, Feinstein made her first ever vote in favor of medical marijuana in May by allowing easier access for veterans. Feinstein then returned to her old ways in June as the only Democrat opposed to blocking the federal government from interfering with state medical marijuana programs.
“California has allowed access to medical marijuana for 20 years and the vast majority of Californians support this,” said Amanda Reiman, Manager, Marijuana Law and Policy, Drug Policy Alliance. “It is disappointing that Senator Feinstein continues to be a lone voice of opposition from California when it comes to supporting medical marijuana patients.”
Reiman and the group of advocates are meeting in front of Feinstein’s office at 2 p.m. Reiman will be tweeting live from the event as well.
