L.A. Council Considering Banning New Medical Marijuana Dispensaries
Anyone wanting to open a new medical marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles over the next year might see their plans go up in smoke, if a plan being considered by a City Council committee comes to fruition.

Medical Marijuana Quandary
Last week, the City Council passed an urg-ency ordinance to extend a temporary moratorium on dispensaries of medicinal marijuana that has been in place for two years. A ban makes it harder for legitimate users of medical marijuana to obtain their supply.

Largest Bust In Sequoia National Park History
Rangers from several national parks had uprooted 17,334 pot plants and destroyed a nursery of 800 seedlings, making it the largest marijuana raid in the park's history.

Pot Club Struggles For Financial Survival
Santa Cruz's oldest marijuana club has seen a precipitous drop in donations that sustain the organization since the federal government raided its gardens five years ago, and organizers are worried they will have to scale back their operations or even close.

Riverside Police Raid Pot Dispensary
Riverside police raided a medical-marijuana dispensary Tuesday that was filled with prepackaged pot stored in a 6-foot-high safe with humidity control.

The Doctor Of Last Resort
When the Medical Marijuana Patients Union held a symposium in Fort Bragg in August, 2004, Sheriff Tony Craver asked an organizer to please introduce him to Dr. Tod Mikuriya. It turned out that Mikuriya had left after participating in a morning panel. "That's one man I've always wanted to meet," said Craver, looking down in disappointment. The sheriff knew there was something unique about Mikuriya, and so did half the cops and prosecutors in California, who, unlike Tony Craver, fiercely resented him for legitimizing people previously considered criminals.

Palm Desert Approves Marijuana Ban
The Palm Desert City Council voted unanimously Thursday to permanently outlaw medical marijuana dispensaries.

Fontana To Let Dispensary Ban Expire
The City Council will allow a 45-day moratorium banning medical marijuana dispensaries to expire on Friday.

People suffering from the ravages of chemotherapy, glaucoma, HIV, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy or terminal illnesses sometime turn to marijuana - as a last hope for relief.

Medical Marijuana Group Moves To Hasten Federal Lawsuit
San Francisco, CA - A national medical marijuana patients' rights group filed a motion for summary judgment today in its lawsuit against the federal government in an attempt to accelerate a decision in the case. The plaintiff, Americans for Safe Access (ASA), filed a lawsuit in February 2007 challenging statements by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that marijuana has no accepted medical value. The lawsuit followed a two-year administrative petition process using a little-known law called the Data Quality Act (DQA), which allows parties to challenge the science used in regulatory policy.
