California voters could not have been any more clear on the issue of 
medical marijuana. Proposition 215, which allows sick people to grow and 
possess this medicine with the recommendation of their doctor, is state 
law, and was passed by a solid majority of California voters. Santa Cruz 
County voters have voted twice by over 70 percent in favor of medical cannabis.

Sen. Diane Feinstein thumbs her nose at the voters. Her official position, 
articulated today by her Washington office, is that marijuana users, of 
whatever stripe, should be subject to arrest under federal law. Yes, Sen. 
Feinstein is pleased to see AIDS patients and other terminally ill patients 
hauled off to jail!

Ms. Feinstein passes herself off as a "progressive liberal' who is in step 
with her California constituents. Nothing could be farther from the truth 
and this duplicitous woman should be turned out of office at the next 
election. Please call Sen. Feinstein's San Francisco or Washington offices 
(202-224-3841) to let her know of her isolation from her constituents.
