U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer ruled as he had to. We all know that
cannabis distribution is a violation of federal law.

What is disturbing is that the federal government would waste resources on
the penny-ante (sic) operations supplying medical cannabis to the sick and
dying. Closer to home, we wonder why Dan Lungren, our state attorney
general, was not in court defending California's citizens from the
overweening power of the federal government. I thought he was a "Big C"

Contrast that with Pat Brown, who opposed capital punishment. Nevertheless,
he signed death warrants when the law required it.

Lundren's refusal to support California even though he is sworn to uphold
the laws of our state should make us wonder about his political integrity.
