Eric Holder....or current occupant
Office of the Attorney General
While I am somewhat neutral in the Medical Marijuana argument, I am not neutral when it comes to the MM dispensaries that have cropped up across the nation, especially in California. If MM is to be legal in various states, against Federal drug laws, then it should be the Federal Gov't that is reaping the huge profits.... The Gov't could tax it upwards of 60%, or just take over the distribution, under the guidance of the FDA, with all the required prescription regulations. These MM businesses are nothing more than drug dealers selling to an entirely different clientele, and need to be stopped, or at the very least heavily regulated and heavily taxed to remove the prospect of huge profits. Your recent actions in California are to be commended, and I'm sure the IRS would be very interested in looking at the books of these illegal businesses.
Now, since you are actively working in California on that mess, how about using your enforcement powers to locate, and prosecute, ALL the sanctuary cities that are operating in direct violation of Federal law, starting in California and working your way east? I would suggest first you remove ALL Federal financial assistance from any state with a sanctuary city within their borders. Second, notify the Governors of all states that any type of "dream Act" must come from Federal legislation, not the states', and that any type of dream act action WILL result in a loss of all Federal assistance, and the prosecution of any Governor that chooses to sign any such illegal acts....
Oh, and good luck with these nasty F&F allegations... If I were you, I would avoid accompanying any of the guys in dark sedans anywhere near a bus station....
