Oaksterdam Reopens in Limited Capacity…


Patients and dispensary workers were happy to find out that Oaksterdam has opened its doors again. News of Oaksterdam University’s raid by federal authorities drew national attention.  Patients, students, and dispensary workers were shocked but claims to see the university open again proved true.  The school had to release 25 employees at the school and another 20 dispensary workers affiliated with Oaksterdam after federal authorities seized assets.  Oaksterdam is currently going to be operating at a smaller capacity and they will not use actual marijuana in classes and demonstrations.  Richard Lee will not be overseeing Oaksterdam.

Proposed Law In California Could Make Local Municipalities Permit Marijuana Dispensaries…


Local governments have adopted different interpretations of California’s medical marijuana program.  Some municipalities have attempted to ban dispensaries with others limiting them.  There have been conflicting court rulings making the legalities even less clear.  Assemblyman Tom Ammiano has introduced legislation that could fix legal inconsistencies in California.  AB 2312, The Medical Marijuana Regulation and Control Act, would set a standard for California medical marijuana law.  It would actually require municipalities to permit medical marijuana dispensaries.  The bill has cleared its initial hurdle and was passed by the Assembly Committee on Public Safety.  Many think the bill has a legitimate chance to pass and now will go before the Assembly Appropriations Committee.

Marijuana Advocacy Groups put Pressure on U.S. Attorney John Walsh to Cease Raids


Activists are fighting back after federal raids have targeted the core of the marijuana reform movement.  Eleven groups have joined together to request that U.S. attorney John Walsh back off of the threatening letters he has sent to 25 medical marijuana dispensaries, citing violations such as proximity to school zones.  The coalition would like to see Walsh respect the dispensaries and patients they serve and have sent a formal letter to the attorney’s office.  Among the 11 members of the group is the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, who recently inducted workers from medical marijuana dispensaries from both California and Colorado.  It appears the strength of the union may already be paying activists dividends.  Additionally, a Denver attorney, Rob Corry, has submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to Walsh, requesting all information Walsh has on medical marijuana and exactly how Walsh determined which dispensaries were too close to schools.  Corry has also asked to see  evidence of the “the outpouring of thanks and appreciation” that Walsh claims to have received since closing dispensaries.

Mayor of San Francisco Calls Marijuana a Nuisance, Compares it to Liquor Stores and Exotic Clubs


While most Americans may not jump for joy at being referred to as a nuisance, marijuana advocates in San Francisco have been seeking such a description for some time.  Mayor Ed Lee now considers marijuana dispensaries as “nuisance retail” but finally called marijuana dispensaries “legitimate.”  This may put dispensaries under the same legal category as strip clubs, liquor stores and pawn shops.  San Francisco has seen a lot of bickering over its medical marijuana dispensaries.  San Francisco currently has 22 dispensaries, with the possibility of more opening as additional permits have been granted.

Medical Marijuana may become Reality in Massachusetts


Momentum for marijuana reform has swept the Northeast. Policy makers in Massachusetts have been debating whether or not to legalize medical marijuana for some time now.  Federal intervention seems to be a concern so politicians seem keen on leaving the issue to the people.  In November, it seems likely that the people of Massachusetts will get a chance to vote on whether or not to legalize medical marijuana.
