Congressional leaders in D.C. like Rep. Maurice Hinchey stand in solidarity and support safe access for patients.

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is raiding two medical cannabis collectives in the City of West Hollywood right now. There is no word yet on arrests. Protesters and legal observers are needed at both locations:

AHHS (Alternative Herbal Health Services) 7828 Santa Monica (@ Fairfax)

Zen Healing Collective, 8464 Santa Monica Blvd (@ La Cienega Blvd.)

Americans for Safe Access strongly condemns the raids and calls on the Administration to live up to its promise of a more reasonable federal policy.

ASA will publish more information about the federal raids and the grassroots response later today.

Under the Obama Administration, the Department of Justice issued a letter to state officials and law enforcement backing off of states that have adopted medical cannabis regulations.

When employees don’t get the memo they should be fired, even if it’s the person who is writing the memos and not adhering to them.

It’s time we stand up for those who can’t and together, with congressional champions like Maurice Hinchey who oppose police and federal raids in medical cannabis states.
