S.F. Officials Urge Obama To Keep Pledge on Medical Pot
In a recent open letter to President Obama, San Francisco City Supervisors Christina Olague, David Campos and Scott Weiner urged him "to keep the commitment he made in 2008 to stop the federal government's attacks" on medical marijuana. Citing recent efforts by federal authorities to seize and close dispensaries across the state, the supervisors urged Obama to "be true to his word" and "ask [the federal prosecutors] to back off."
