Local Democrats Ask Obama to Leave S.F. Marijuana Clubs Alone

San Francisco Democrats turned on one of their own as they issued a scathing rebuttal to President Barack Obama's explanation of his unpopular crackdown of medical marijuana clubs.

The local Democratic Party passed a resolution yesterday, demanding that President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, and U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag “cease all federal actions in San Francisco immediately, respect state and local laws, and stop the closure of city-permitted medical cannabis facilities.”

The resolution was co-sponsored by 21 DCCC members including: Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco); State Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco); Supervisors David Campos and David Chiu; former State Senator Carole Migden; and former Supervisor Aaron Peskin.
