California medical cannabis patients are rallying in Sacramento on Nov. 9 against the recent attack on the medical marijuana community.
The protest website states that “federal efforts to shut down licensed dispensaries in California is a full-frontal attack by the Obama Administration.” Organizers at Americans For Safe Access are urging patients to take a stand at this peaceful protest saying, “cutting of safe access for patients pushes those patients into an illicit market to obtain their medicine.”
Organizers also urge patients to flood the White House hotline to “tell Obama to stop wasting federal enforcement resources on medical marijuana” and to “make sure that marijuana is the number one thing the President hears about.”
Several Sacramento area advocates have stepped up to offer support for patients coming in from out of the area. Offers of RV parking, camping areas, spare rooms, floor space for sleeping and cooked meals can be arranged to assist YOU in being a part of this peaceful protest event.
