We are outraged to report that the DEA is currently raiding the Women's Alliance for Medical Marijuana in Santa Cruz, a
collective serving 300 seriously ill patients. WAMM Director Valerie Corral and Mike Corral are in handcuffs, and the DEA is destroying their garden.

DEA Raids Santa Cruz Dispensary!

*This is an emergency alert from Americans for Safe Access.*

On September 5, 2002 , federal agents raided the WAMM medical cannabis dispensary in Santa Cruz . We are asking all medical cannabis supporters to rally in opposition to this raid at noon on September 6th in front of the federal building in your city.

These demonstrations are a vital part of our grassroots opposition to the federal crackdown. Please make plans to attend and encourage others to do so. Please check our web site or call the ASA office if you need additional information about the location of your federal building or other demonstration site.

You can reach the CAN/ASA office directly at (510) 486-8083.

Thank you for your active support and participation.


Americans for Safe Access is an aggressive grassroots campaign designed to force the federal government to stop its attack on patients and respect the rights of voters to choose medical marijuana policy.

Our Demands:

We demand that all prosecutions of medical marijuana patients, growers, and dispensaries cease immediately.

We demand that President Bush & Attorney General Ashcroft declare a moratorium on the Federal anti-medical marijuana campaign.

We demand President Bush declare his support for HR 2592, the States’ Rights to Medical Marijuana Act.

Local ASA contacts to organize your emergency response!
