9 Members of Congress Send Letter to White House Asking for Med Marijuana Crackdown to End
According to the Huffington Post, 9 members of Congress have sent a letter to the White House asking for the current crackdown on medical marijuana to end.
Although most of the nine signatories on a Friday letter to the White House were California Democrats — including Reps. Barbara Lee, Pete Stark, Lynn Woolsey and Sam Farr — the group also contained a California Republican, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, who is an outspoken medical marijuana advocate, and a Tennessee Democrat, Rep. Steve Cohen.
“We write to express our concern with the recent activity by the Department of Justice against legitimate medical cannabis dispensaries in California that are operating legally under state law,” the lawmakers said.
