President Obama, AG Holder: Stop War on Cannabis Patients, Replace US Attorney Laura Duffy

Laura E. Duffy was sworn in as the Presidentially-appointed United States Attorney for the Southern District of California on June 2, 2010. Since then, she has waged a vindictive war on legitimate medical marijuana patients in her district.

Duffy has ordered arrests, prosecutions, and investigations of medical marijuana patients in clear and unambiguous compliance with state law. In addition, she has directly threatened elected officials and staff with federal prosecutions for passing legislation regulating medical marijuana.

Duffy must be removed and replaced with a US Attorney willing to work with elected officials and the community, instead of waging war against the most vulnerable among us.
