Oakland’s got guts

Oakland Insists It Can Defend Medical Pot Club

SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – The city of Oakland renewed demands to stay forfeiture proceedings against a local medical marijuana dispensary whose business it defends as a matter of state’s rights.

Though the U.S. government says that Oakland lacks standing to try to block it from seizing Harborside Health Center, the city argued that it has an interest in protecting its economic and public health interests, and it says a stay would serve the orderly adjudication of justice.

I have no idea whether the city has a chance of winning, but I really admire and applaud the fight.

Read the whole thing – it’s pretty entertaining.
