"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
The Good! *San Diego Mayor Bob Filner (D)* Filner has sent memos to zoning and code enforcement officers in San Diego - ordering them to end all code enforcement actions against medical marijuana facilities in that city. Filner is also encouraging the city council to take up the issue of formal zoning rule for medical marijuana distribution. And - he has directed the city's police chief to end all medical marijuana enforcement actions. Elected in November - Filner ran largely on a platform of decriminalizing marijuana and protecting the use of medical marijuana. It looks like Mayor Filner is one politician who understands just how out-dated and ineffective this nation's drug laws are. Let's hope he's just the first of many.
