San Diego to End Medical Marijuana Shop Raids

Mayor orders end to crackdown

|

City code enforcement officers and police will no longer target medical marijuana dispensaries under a directive issued Friday by Mayor Bob Filner.

Filner, in letters to Kelly Broughton, director of the Development Services Department, which oversees code compliance, and San Diego police Chief William Landsdowne, also directed both of their departments "to stop sending dispensary code enforcement cases to the City Attorney's Office for prosecution."

"To be clear, if there are general code enforcement or health and safety issues arising from these businesses, you are expected to enforce those laws against these businesses in the same manner you would any other business," the mayor wrote.

  1. Legally regulated (manufacture, distribution and consumption) of marijuana is coming to a state near you in 2013:

    CALIFORNIA

    “These laws just don’t make sense anymore. It’s shocking, from my perspective, the number of people that we all know who are recreational marijuana users? these are incredibly upstanding citizens: Leaders in our community, and exceptional people.”
    ?Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom (preparing the way for Governor Jerry Brown to initiate proceedings to legalize and regulate marijuana through the state legislature)

    MAINE

    Maine’s legislature is moving on a legalization-and-regulation bill that could bring the state $8 million a year in new revenue.

    ”The people are far ahead of the politicians on this. Just in the past few weeks we’ve seen the culture shift dramatically.”
    ?Rep. Diane Russell of Portland, District 120 (Occupation: Public Relations Consultant)

    NEW YORK

    “Today, marijuana possession is the number one arrest in New York City.” citing the harmful outcomes of these arrests ? racial disparities, stigma, fiscal waste, criminalization ? and calling on the legislature to act: “It’s not fair, it’s not right. It must end, and it must end now.”
    ?New York Governor Andrew Cuomo

    NEVADA

    “Thinking we’re not going to have it is unrealistic. It’s just a question of how and when”
    ?Assemblyman Richard (Tick) Segerblom of Las Vegas, elected to the Nevada State Senate in 2012

  2. Legally regulated (manufacture, distribution and consumption) of marijuana is coming to a state near you in 2013:

    OREGON

    “We have decades of evidence that says prohibition does not work and it’s counterproductive. it’s a matter of dollars and common sense. There’s a source of revenue that’s reasonable that is rational that is the right policy choice for our state. We are going to get there on legalization.”
    ?Peter Buckley, co-chair of the Oregon state legislature’s budget committee.

    PENNSYLVANIA

    “Like alcohol, legalization and regulation will make marijuana safer. Each year we not only waste a similar amount ($325.36 million), we leave several hundred million dollars on the table in taxes that we do not collect because marijuana is illegal, rather than regulated and taxed. This horrific policy must end. It is a moral imperative that Pennsylvania wake up and end prohibition now.”
    ?Democrat State Sen. Daylin Leach, while announcing plans to introduce legislation that would legalize marijuana in Pennsylvania.

    RHODE ISLAND

    Rhode Island is also expected to legally regulate marijuana through the state legislature instead of a popular referendum.

    ”Our prohibition has failed, Legalizing and taxing it, just as we did to alcohol, is the way to do it.”
    ?Rep. Edith Ajello, chairs the House Committee on Judiciary and is a member of the House Oversight Committee.
