"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. The path taken by Sonoma law enforcement yesterday is counterproductive to moving cannabis businesses towards licensing and regulatory compliance.”

image More Information (Comment On: Meeting on Likely DEA raids in Sonoma) by Press Democrat
Report from JULIE JOHNSON THE PRESS DEMOCRAT | June 15, 2016 Sonoma County law enforcement agencies raided a half-dozen properties associated with a local nonprofit cannabis oil company called Care By Design Wednesday morning, including a large laboratory at a west Santa Rosa business park. Santa Rosa Police Lt. Michael Lazzarini said that “several” people had been arrested on drug possession charges during the coordinated searches at businesses at Circadian Way and Standish Avenue, a nursery at a rural property on Irwin Lane and residences in Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park. Detectives suspect the entirety of the operation — from the cannabis oil manufacturing to the way the business was being run — was being done outside the law and city codes, Lazzarini said. But a spokesman with Care By Design, a well-known brand of products infused with cannabis oils, said that they are a legal business and have been working with state regulator to “set the gold standard” for how concentrated cannabis manufacturing. Santa Rosa police teamed up with Sonoma County sheriff’s deputies and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents to conduct coordinated searches of at least six properties in the city and county affiliated with the group, Lazzarini said.

UFW does nothing to protect workers, the environment, and consumers against millions and millions and millions of tons of toxic pesticides and herbicides. Dolores Huerta's 100,000 dollar buy out by Hillary Clinton, sustained by GMO, Big Ag, Monsanto, Syngenta, fracking lobbyists, Roundup Ready et al, et al Cesar Chavez had something different in mind, Ms. Huerta &UFW. What good is a union if your workers, land, and consumers are being actively poisoned? United Farm Workers refuse to answer.
