"Thousands of California patients woke up today fearing for the future of their medicine" said Don Duncan, California Director of Americans for Safe Access. “It is time for local authorities to address perceived violation of regulations by means of civil penalties instead of criminal action.

text Oakland cops target the African American community by Lynda Carson
According to a Stanford study, African American men were more likely to be handcuffed during a stop (1 out of 4 times) than whites (1 out of 15 times), excluding arrests. African American men were also more likely to be searched (1 in 5 times vs. 1 in 20 times for whites), though officers were no more likely to make a recovery from those searches. African American men were more likely to be arrested after a stop by police –1 in every 6 vs. 1 in 14 for white men.
