The recent indictment and arrest in Los Angeles of medical marijuana
patient-activists Peter McWilliams, Todd McCormick and others is nothing but
a cynical attempt by federal officials to silence these outspoken defenders
of medical rights.

When California voters passed Prop 215, they indicated they wanted to see
medicinal marijuana made available to those in need. Since then, U.S. and
California officials have been working full-time to derail this initiative.

Not only is the federal government trying to silence these defenders of
liberty, but in the case of Peter McWilliams, they are apparently trying to
murder him by denying him his AIDS medications.

This is the same government that recently cleared itself of facilitating the
importation of cocaine by the CIA and Contras in the 1980's, despite the
fact there is overwhelming evidence of their involvement.

This cruel and immoral war on medical marijuana patients must stop now.
