Strong words from the assemblyman in yesterday's Chron, in response to the four U.S. Attorneys in California who have caused the closure of five permitted dispensaries in San Francisco, plus one in Fairfax. Ammiano also argues the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and mayor need to be more vociferous: "We cannot allow the wholesale dismantling of medical marijuana in the state by a rogue Department of Justice," he said.
