Three upcoming SF dates (Americans for Safe Access)

Friday, January 20th, San Francisco: Court Support for San Francisco Dispensary Defendants

Status hearing at 11:00am before Judge Susan Illston in U.S. District Court, 450 Golden Gate, San Francisco. On June 22, 2005, less than three weeks after the Gonzales v. Raich decision, three dispensaries were shut down in San Francisco by the DEA, with full cooperation of the San Francisco Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies. Twenty people were indicted on charges ranging from marijuana cultivation to money laundering. The DEA also worked collaboratively with media to sensationalize the raid by referring to the arrestees as part of an “Asian Mafia.”
