Hemp Hero - Attorney Bruce Margolin

This is to other hemp activists who believe in the work of Los Angeles marijuana attorney Bruce Margolin . That a web search on the issue of medical marijuana clubs being shut down in LA had not one media outlet talking to him on the subject I find horrifying. It's called 'seek but do not find.'  If we hempsters unify behind Atty Margolin with his ample legal experience on the matter, we can break through the stupidity called the war on drugs.

The late Sister Somayah Kambui use to call Margolin the best in the businesses. She trusted her life to him many times and he never let her down.

Success is preparation joining with opportunity. We have an opportunity to end hemp prohibition now.  439 clubs in LA have their walking papers. It's time for a class action suit and the clubs have the means and the motivation to do it. "Los Angeles city prosecutors began notifying 439 medical marijuana dispensaries Tuesday that they must shut down by June 7, when the city's ordinance to regulate the stores takes effect. It's the first step in what could be a lengthy and expensive legal battle to regain control over pot sales.

The letters, which were sent to both dispensary operators and property owners, warn that violations of the city's laws are a misdemeanor and could lead to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. Collectives that stay open after the deadline could also face civil penalties of $2,500 a day.

"We're hopeful that the fact that we've given them more than 30 days to comply that a significant number of them will cease operating," said Asha Greenberg, the assistant city attorney who has handled most of the efforts to close dispensaries."   Clubs, plus every other citizen who stands for sanity, should let Bruce make the case. This must be done quickly to at least get a stay because June 7th will be here fast. The Will of the Government is not more important than the Will of the People, as expressed in Prop 215.

I also recommend Richard M. Davis' book HEMP FOR VICTORY: THE WONDER HERB which is a museum tour on the subject as evidence. Many other books, organizations, etc. can be added to the list.  No need wasting too much time on is medical hemp adequately tested and proven useful.

Again, if you think this is a good salvation move, let's encourage the clubs (and others) to hire/support Bruce Margolin, Richard M. Davis and other long standing hemp activists to bring peace where there is chaos.  Hemp For Victory!!!

Thanks for putting these videos out with Lanny and Mr. Margolin, we were shooting our documentary back in 2006 and remember all of these stories. In an attempt to put the word out on the street regarding Proposition 19, we are looking for like-minded people to review our documentary and post blogs about it's fragile content. Our YouTube Channel features previously deleted scenes of Both Lanny Swerdlow and Bruce Margolin. We've been documenting all relevant pot activity for many years and have won awards and accolades across the country. The film is currently available on for FREE! So, thanks again and hope to keep fighting the good fight and telling the truth about cannabis.
