You don't have to look any further than the extreme irony of Dr. Tod
Mikuriya's case to see that the Medical Board of California really is
on a witch hunt. It took action against him for violating accepted
medical standards in recommending marijuana. The irony is that the
board has never published such standards. The greater irony is that
Mikuriya has been actively campaigning to get the board to adopt
standards and has submitted suggested standards himself, even before
the case was brought against him. In the end, it is persecuting him
because of its own failure to act.

This is an open and obvious vendetta against the law already approved
by the voters of California.
