FROM THIS EPISODE

Yesterday Orange County’s all-Republican board of supervisors became California’s 33rd county to begin licensing the use of medical marijuana.  On that same day, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration arrested dispensary operators elsewhere in Southern California. Tonight, we’ll hear from the feds, from an Orange County supervisor, and from a former operator of a marijuana clinic.

Main Topic More Raids & More Questions About Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana is illegal under federal law, but California voters approved its use in 1996. In 2003, the state legislature passed laws for growing it and for issuing identification cards for patients whose doctors approve it. Yesterday, Orange County became the 33rd of the state’s 58 counties to establish medical marijuana programs.
