District attorney weighs in on MMJ letters

Posted By on Wed, Jan 18, 2012 at 12:59 PM

It's not much of a sentiment one way or the other, but today we obtained a statement from District Attorney Dan May on his opinion regarding the letters recently issued by the state's U.S. Attorney.

Via a spokeswoman, May e-mailed us, "The Obama administration, through drug czar R. Gil Kerlikowske and the Justice Department, has consistently opposed medical marijuana and the legalization of marijuana. This is consistent with that position and they’re acting legally within the framework of the federal law."

May's thoughts on the topic are generally interesting considering his known antagonistic attitude towards the local MMJ industry, which has drawn the attention of local attorneys who say the DA's office is no longer dealing fairly with their marijuana clients.
