    These 6 sheriff offices are ignoring
    State laws & working only on fed laws
    w/the DEA. The goal is to collect $$$s
    from folks who fail to pull their plants
    & who will suffer U.S. forfeiture actions.

    See this latest letter threatening this.

    In the past few years they had Operation
    Trident, which recognized CA MMJ laws.

    My action for preliminary injunction
    Against the Fresno Co ordinance was
    Heard on 4/27, but the Judge delayed
    This until 5/18. The delay was due to a
    Dispute between the county atty &
    The dispensary plaintiff who was
    Consolidated into my action. They
    Argued about the corp status of the
    Business and other bus related issues
    Which do not effect me as an
    Individual grower.

    Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Merced and Tulare. They comprise the Central
    Valley High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA); there are four HIDTAs
    in California.
    HIDTA is a grant program administered by the Office of National Drug Policy
    Control. If you're in a HIDTA zone, the feds have more grant funding and
    resources to target medical cannabis growers and distributors. Which is
    exactly what's happening here in HIDTA-Land.

    Now putting together a website on how NIDA prevents Medical Cannabis
    research by simply not giving out permits to do so.
    A couple of years ago, I remember someone at NIDA saying that "No permits
    were issued, because no one had ever asked for them."
    Does anyone have any info on that incident? A name, when it happened,

    It seems a certainty that many small contributions to pay for signature gathering is their greatest need. The campaign appears both well organized and credible. And there's no internecine conflict over which initiative to back…

    From HuffPo this date:
    "While delivering his remarks at the 2012 White House Correspondents'
    Dinner, comedian Jimmy Kimmel addressed the issue of marijuana legalization.
    "What is with the marijuana crackdown? Seriously, what is the concern?
    We will deplete the nation's Funyun supply?" Kimmel said. "Pot smokers
    vote too. Sometimes a week after the election, but they vote."
    Kimmel then posed a challenge to the crowd, which was made up of
    celebrities like Kim Kardashian and George Clooney.
    "I would like everyone in this room to raise your hand if you've never
    smoked pot," Kimmel said.
    Few hands went up.
    Noting the crowd's reaction, Kimmel addressed President Barack Obama
    "Marijuana is something that real people care about," Kimmel said."
