Hello and please take the time to read this.
Recently there has been an upset in my life and many others. The Garden of Eden in Hayward california was closed for a period of time due to a D.E.A Raid. This dispensary is world class in my opinion; never delivering anything but premium medicine. Untampered and safe.
Now what are patients suppose to do?
Take bart for hours far away or drive forever in traffic to get their medicine?
What about on the way there, being in pain around a bunch of people
doesn't sound like fun to me. This madness needs to be stopped.
Unjust persecution of a God Given Medicine is NOT right. People need
to be informed. Something needs to be
I will help any way I can, I have been a patient of Garden of Eden for 4 or so years now after suffering a broken back resulting in paraplegia of my legs. I use a titanium wheelchair now.
Compassionate Collective of Alameda County (CCAC),
was renamed the Compassionate Patientsí Cooperative
a Medical Marijuana Collective
Raided by the DEA
October 30, 2007
proprietors Winslow Norton, 26 and Abraham Norton, 23 were arrested.
The brothers face up to 40 years in prison, and a $2 million fine.
Southern and Eastern Alameda County now has no Medical Marijuana Collective. Patients now have to travel to Oakland to obtain their legal medicine or seek out an illegal drug source.
In my opinion, all three of the Medical Marijuana Collectives located in Unincorporated Alameda County were cooperative with Alameda County government and were performing a service to "Humanity".
I implore President Elect Barack Obama to end the raids and allow states to regulate and tax medical marijuana without harassment from the Federal Government. Please order the Food and Drug administration to conduct the long overdue research that has been requested by the government's own administrative law judges. This will allow medical marijuana to be removed as a schedule 1 drug. This will allow patients to have the medicine they need and allow researchers to investigate the many components of medical marijuana. Some even look promising in the suppression of cancer cells.( See Judge James Gray Video)
MILLION in sales tax in Unincorporated Alameda County
Local Government loses $1.68 Million per year
Now that the DEA has raided and closed the 3 medical marijuana Collectives in Unincorporated Alameda County, the State and County will not receive millions of dollars in taxes next year. Thanks to the destructive actions of the DEA in our locality.
It is ludicrous to waste Federal and County tax dollars to destroy sources of State and Local government tax dollars.
Between 80 and 100 employees lost good paying jobs and benefits adding to the meltdown of the U.S. economy and hardship to their families. As a result the State and Federal governments lost income tax revenue and FICA payments. These assaults on these dispensaries only waste money and destroy lives.
President Elect Obama please stop these destructive raids and allow for appropriate Regulation and Taxation.
