Nancy Pelosi Condemns Federal Attacks on Medical Marijuana

Submitted by David Borden on

Yesterday we reported that advocates had presented House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi with a petition asking her to help end the federal crackdown on medical marijuana. (Click here and scroll down to the last paragraph of the California section of our Medical Marijuana Update.)

Pelosi responded, issuing a statement on "Recent Federal Actions Threatening Safe Access to Medical Marijuana":

"I have strong concerns about the recent actions by the federal government that threaten the safe access of medicinal marijuana to alleviate the suffering of patients in California, and undermine a policy that has been in place under which the federal government did not pursue individuals whose actions complied with state laws providing for medicinal marijuana."
