Medical Pot Advocates Rally During Obama’s Oakland Visit
In advance of a re-election fundraiser for President Obama in Oakland on Monday, hundreds of medical marijuana patients and advocates rallied against federal efforts to shut down the city's regulated dispensaries. Protestors urged Obama to block federal efforts to close medical marijuana dispensaries until he clarifies his administration's stance on dispensaries that abide by state and local laws.
