Keith Alden Court Support: June 22, 2006, San Francisco

Intrepid medicinal marijuana cultivator and caregiver Keith Alden will be in court on Thursday, June 22nd, 2006, at 2pm, at the San Francisco Federal Courthouse, 450 Golden Gate Avenue, in San Francisco, California. In a sprawling case dating back to 2001, Keith has alternately been sentenced to probation, then prison for growing while on probation. He has been out on bail since April, 2004. Yet another victim of the post-Raich series of remands, Keith awaits re-sentencing.

But it gets better. Keith and his attorney, Allison Margolin, are doggedly pursuing a legal strategy that threatens to end the war on drugs. In a nutshell, they are stating that the federal government has no jurisdiction in these cases whatsoever, and that they should be tossed out summarily. To indicate the seriousness of this revolutionary strategy, they are offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who can prove otherwise.
