As did Prohibition from 1920 to 1933, so too will our Governments' Prohibition regarding Medical Marijana is now; though if the issue were regarded as medical and run as such, rather than it has been without oversite or proper guildlines as a pharmaceutical system rather than the Free-as-you-please / laza-fair that the California State Government has elected to follow.
A revision of the Measure with dedicated guildlines and procedures for Dispensories to follow and mitigate with State Authority and protection.
That's my take on the current affairs of Medical Marijana.

I seriously doubt that closer regulation will do anything to change the federal government's position on marijuana meant for any use. The only thing that will change the status quo will be multiple states legalizing the drug for any use and forcing the federal government through attrition to change their legal perception of the plant.

"forcing the federal government through attrition to change their legal perception of the plant. "

I thought of the bodily/nutritional attrification many cancer and other patients are now going to experience.
How about some more pain for the victim of a hit and run?
Let's destroy the life of someone for smoking a joint.

I want to personally thank those of you who recognize the necessity and benefit of medicinal marijuana! Prohibition has never and will never be the answer! I encourage everyone who understands and supports Medicinal Marijuana to continue to fight for us! Equally as important, is the ongoing education of those who fear what they do not know! The toughest fight we have ahead of us is not those who have been misinformed, but those who know nothing about our cause! Education, the truth and compassion are our greatest tools! Let's please use our heads and our hearts to get the message out! Thanks again, for your love, understanding and commitment to this life changing cause. Without you, we fight this fight sadly and alone. May God Bless all of you who stand beside us! I know that together we can make a change! United we stand! My heartfelt appreciation to all of you! Sincerely,

Question:
Why did Federal Agents choose to target Santa Barbara along with a few select communities? Not all of California? Not Oakland?
Anyone? Mayor?

Because the sheriff and DA requested assistance. Mayor Schneider has been supportive of medicinal marijuana; only Doreen Farr on the county board of sups has been.

native2sb: Oaksterdam didn't count, huh? Owner Richard Lee was a major financial backer of Prop 19. Obama is trying to grab some conservative votes and is stabbing himself in the back, and Holder is in contempt of Congress.
GOOD NEWS! Law Enforcement Against Prohibition member and speaker James Gray, retired Santa Ana Superior Court Judge, author of "Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed And What We Can Do About It: A Judicial Indictment of the War on Drugs" is a Libertarian vice presidential candidate running with presidential candidate Gary Johnson, former New Mexico governor.
