Attorney General Eric Holder is an embattled man. For refusing to release documents related to the Fast and the Furious “gun-walking” scandal, Congress on Thursday voted to hold the country's top law enforcement officer in contempt.
Holder may face criminal charges after the contempt vote, the first such move taken against a sitting Cabinet official. Senate Republicans are calling on the AG to resign — and now medical marijuana advocates are piling on, seeking to add to Holder's woes.
On June 7, Holder told Congress what he's been saying for years: The Justice Department isn't touching state law-abiding medical marijuana. Then on June 11, the Justice Department did what they've been doing for years: They raided dispensary El Camino Wellness in Sacramento, which, according to advocates, had been obeying all the rules.
