An organization of retired and disabled members of the law enforcement community who have become medical marijuana patients is joining with other cannabis patients and advocates in calling on the City of Live Oak, California to regulate medical marijuana cultivation instead of banning it.
"The City of Live Oak is going to force legitimate medical marijuana patients to put themselves in danger by buying their medicine from the underground market," said Nate Bradley, executive director of Lawmen Protecting Patients (LPP).
"The ordinance is in clear violation of Prop 215 which grants patients the right to posses and obtain marijuana with a doctor's recommendation," Bradley said.
LPP is asking medical marijuana patients and supporters to come to Live Oak City Hall at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 17, to show their opposition to the ordinance which bans medical marijuana cultivation by patients.
Lawmen Protecting Patients (LPP) was founded by disabled and retired members of the law enforcement community whose lives were changed by the use of medical marijuana.
"We are dedicated to protecting the rights of medical marijuana users and to educate the medical cannabis community," Bradley said.
