Time to protect medical marijuana, San Diego!

Dear medical marijuana supporter,

Finally! The San Diego City Council is considering adopting medical marijuana dispensary regulations that were developed recently by the city’s Medical Marijuana Task Force, with substantial public input. The City Council is trying to do the right thing – finalize regulations in 2010. Let’s show them our thanks!

Will you join me in thanking the City Council for their leadership and urging them to support the Task Force’s recommendations? Our website makes it easy!

The San Diego City Council is doing a difficult and brave thing – it’s putting safe access for medical marijuana patients and the needs of San Diegans above the political opposition of the County Board of Supervisors and the District Attorney. Unlike the County, the City Council understands that regulation is key to both safe access and public order. It’s got an important meeting coming up on January 4, 2010.

Please let the City Council know you’re watching what they’re up to. Tell them to keep up the good work and finalize medical marijuana dispensary regulations in 2010.

The County finally exhausted its litigation against California’s medical marijuana laws in 2009 – and lost. Let’s support the City Council’s regulatory efforts in 2010 – and win!

Happy Holidays!
