It seems the Obama administration hasn’t been keeping their promise of not prosecuting those following state and local laws. As we all know, medical marijuana is technically legal in certain states but since it’s still federally illegal, so you’re still breaking the law in some way. It’s a little complicated, but it seems dispensaries are still getting harrassed by DEA and other agencies hired by the federal government even though these establishments aren’t technically doing anything wrong. I know there’s a lot of technicalities. Here’s an excerpt of the letter sent directly to Obama from ACLU:
If, contrary to the assurances its attorneys provided the court in the Santa Cruz case, the federal government’s enforcement policies now include ‘vigorously enforcing’ federal drug laws against individuals and entities who manufacture and distribute marijuana on a completely non-profit basis and in full compliance with state medical marijuana laws, it marks a significant departure from the federal government’s position in the Santa Cruz litigation and could lead to that case being reinstated in its October 2009 posture with discovery proceeding as originally planned.
