MMJ Week in San Diego – Chapter Meeting and Rally for Safe Access

Today is the start of Medical Marijuana Week! Americans for Safe Access has created a week of actions our community must participate in to save safe access across the country.

Today’s target is Obama! Despite his indication to take a more reasonable approach to medical cannabis, President Obama and his Administration have become more aggressive towards our community. In addition to raids, the Obama Administration has launched a variety of new tactics including patient privacy violations, seizing and shutting down of medical cannabis related bank accounts, manipulation of the tax code, threats to government officials and landlords, and interfering with medical cannabis patients’ Right to Bear Arms.

In San Diego, the community will be active all week:

  • Tuesday, February 14th join the San Diego ASA Chapter for our monthly meeting at the La Jolla Brew House from 7-9pm where we will be discussing the community’s response to the federal threats, chapter elections, as well as medical cannabis news from across the county and state.

  • Thursday, February 16th, from noon-2pm join patients, advocates, and supporters of medical cannabis for a Rally / march in front of the San Diego Federal Courthouse (940 Front St. San Diego CA)RSVP for the rally on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/events/346166642072461/

The time has come to stand up and speak out against the mass eradication of Medical Cannabis in our City and State!
