With all the excitement surrounding Prop 19, Steve Cooley's campaign for California Attorney General hasn't generated as much concern as it should. Americans for Safe Access has released a video to remind voters that Cooley is a vicious enemy of California's medical marijuana laws.
If Prop 19 fails and Cooley is elected, this season's marijuana reform honeymoon is going to come to a crashing halt in short order. This guy is as nasty a drug warrior as there is, and if he becomes California's top law enforcement official, it isn't going to be pretty.
