I think all Chicoans should ask their city councilors to file an 
amicus brief on behalf of Americans for Safe Access in their lawsuit 
charging the feds with violation of the 10th Amendment, requesting 
declaratory and injunctive relief from their recent attack on medical 
marijuana in California -briefs from the council, or as citizens, 
should consensus be unreachable. The council was moving toward 
regulated, safe access of medical marijuana, under state law, and was vetoed.

The Supreme Court has opined that the feds do have the right to 
enforce their federal drug laws, as Diane Monson of Oroville and 
District Attorney Mike Ramsey can attest.

But the veiled threat of prison for the council and staff from U.S. 
Attorney Benjamin Wagner is way past just enforcing their law. The 
council was terrorized into their regressive action.

It's either that or the whole bunch are rubes who still believe 
"Reefer Madness" is a documentary.
