Wednesday, August 1, 2007 : Some 50 people, including four Berkeley city councilmembers, rallied at the Maudelle Shirek Building Tuesday, demanding that federal drug agents and the Los Angeles Police Department stay out of Berkeley and that the city become a sanctuary for distributors of medical marijuana. Either—or both—the Drug Enforcement Agency or the LAPD was responsible for freezing the Berkeley Patients Group’s account at the Bank of America, according to BPD administrator Debby Goldsberry, who discovered the funds were frozen when she went to make a withdrawal on Monday.
