Santa Cruz Defies Bush Administration on Medical Marijuana
In an historic act of civil disobedience, members of the Santa Cruz City Council have invited the Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana (WAMM), raided last week by the Drug Enforcement Administration, to distribute medical marijuana to patients in the City Hall courtyard on Sept. 17. During the action, scheduled for 3:00 p.m. PDT, members of the council will stand with WAMM members in an act of solidarity. This dramatic event, which WAMM lawyer Ben Rice calls "our Boston Tea Party," comes in the midst of a national wave of outrage at the DEA's latest raids, including new calls for Congressional action.
