      When California voters passed the Compassionate Use Act fifteen years ago, they never expected that their elected representatives would try to override them. State and local legislators are under no obligation to enforce federal laws; rather, they are sworn to uphold their state's constitution. Passing this ordinance would put the county supervisors on the wrong side of the law, and on the wrong side of history.

      The People v. Kelly case decided by the California Supreme Court on 1/10/10 held that Prop 215 is California Constitutional law.

      Thus, patient's rights to ingest Medical Cannabis is California Constitutional law.

      If local political "yokels" choose to violate patients' constitutional rights by establishing local ordinances that violate the Constitutional rights of patients, they will be turned out of office when the County of Sacramento is sued and loses.

      Cost the taxpayers money and see how long you last as a politician.

      Moreover, get a better lawyer as county oounsel because you are barking at a dog that is bigger than you imagine.
