Yesterday, April 2nd, saw the DOJ aloing with the IRS conduct a major raid on Oakstredam University in Oakland, CA.
With all the political news and shooting that happened in Oakland, this story has gotten a back seat in the news. For those of you who are unaware of the university, it is the first school in the US that educates students in every facet of the medical marijuana industry in California based on state medical marijuana laws. The school complies with all state laws and educates people to be able to do the same if they get into medical marijuana.
The founder was also the author and funder of Proposition 19 in California which would have completely legalized marijuana in California.
The Federal government has still to recognize this law that the overwhelming MAJORITY of Californians support and continues to be hostile and imposes itself AGAINST the will of our great state.
President Obama PROMISED that the DOJ would not prosecute anybody that was complying with state medical marijuana laws when he was campaigning and after taking office but it seems that he is going back on his word for whatever reason I do not know.
I would love if people contacted the DOJ and White House to express their outrage towards these actions and hold the President to his word on not going after legal providers that comply with state laws. If this issue is imprtant to you I urge you to contact them on the phone as well as email.

I have not heard a word about this from the punditry although it was covered on the front page of the LA Times.
