Los Angeles Times to Eric Holder: Rein in Your U.S. Attorneys



After federal agents brandishing assault rifles raided a popular Chinatown dispensary this week, the Los Angeles Times follows in the steps of our own Robert Gammon, saying these U.S. Attorneys are off their chain.

"... we urge Holder to rein in the four California U.S. attorneys spearheading the aggressive new stance ... the raids are likely to drive away businesspeople who want to run clean, safe storefronts serving sick people, sending the trade further underground and into the hands of a more criminal element."

The L.A. Times has also boldly stepped into 2004, calling for laws to regulate and tax dispensaries at the statewide level.
