DOJ to Charles Lynch: Business as Usual
The US Dept of Justice has made a mockery of AG Eric Holder's policy of supposedly respecting state medical marijuana laws in the case of Charles C. Lynch, whose sentencing has been delayed until June 11.
"The Office of the Deputy Attorney General has reviewed the facts of this case and determined
that the investigation, prosecution, and conviction of defendant are entirely consistent with the policies of DOJ and with public statements made by the Attorney General with respect to marijuana prosecutions. " - US Dept of Justice in case of Charles C. Lynch Click here to read the letter
The administration needs to be told loud and clear that this policy is unacceptable. Lynch
acted consistently with California law but was never given a chance to defend himself. The
AG's callous response in this case represents federal "lynch" law at its worst.
