Donna Shalala and Bob Dole have been assigned to investigate the situation. A superficial clean-up will ensue -rodents poisoned, moldy drywall replaced-while the quality of care gets lauded and prosthetic limbs are presented as proof that all is state-of-the-art.

Wed, 01 Mar 2006 08:00:00 GMTAnderson Valley Advertiser, 01 Mar 2006 - Early in February an anonymous concerned citizen sent Philip A. Denney, MD, documents revealing that two of the patients he'd examined at his Redding office in the Fall of 2005 had misled him. A report filed by one of the poseurs, a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agent, was quoted extensively here last week. The second infiltrator, a civilian confidential informant, was the source of the following "investigative narrative" by Redding PD officer Tracy Miller: On 09-21-05 at approximately 1415 hours, Redding Police Department Investigator WALLACE, DEA Agent HALE, and I met and conducted a briefing regarding using a confidential informant to make a controlled buy of a marijuana prescription.

Wed, 15 Jun 2005 07:00:00 GMTAnderson Valley Advertiser, 15 Jun 2005 - In a six-to-three vote announced June 6, the U.S. Supreme Court has denied Angel Raich and Diane Monson the right -established by California voters in 1996- to obtain and use marijuana for medical purposes. Phony Tony awards go to Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy, two of the five justices who advocate limits on federal power but in this case made a War-on-Drugs exception to their "principles." John Paul Stevens, who wrote the majority opinion, was joined by Kennedy, David Souter, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Steven Breyer. Scalia wrote a concurring opinion trying to justify his switcheroo. Kennedy didn't feel he owed the public an explanation.
Wed, 08 Dec 2004 08:00:00 GMTMetro Santa Cruz, 08 Dec 2004 - It's not looking good for medical marijuana advocates in the landmark case currently before the Supreme Court. As they watch with a mixture of hope and horror at justices arguing about wheat production rather than the medical and humanitarian importance of the case, they're already asking the toughest question of all: 'What happens if we lose?'

Fri, 03 Dec 2004 08:00:00 GMTRocky Mountain News, 03 Dec 2004 - Assault weapons drawn, dozens of black-clad federal agents, in full riot gear and body armor, burst into a peaceful suburban Aurora home at the end of quiet cul-de-sac. No, they don't seek Osama bin Laden; instead, agents scour every nook and cranny for that pernicious threat to national security: state-approved medical marijuana, used by sick patients for relief from illness and pain, as Colorado voters intended. Inside the home, agents find a terrified man who peacefully presents his state of Colorado-issued card and certificate, the government's permission for him to grow, possess and use medical marijuana. This gentle man, Dana K. May, suffers from reflex sympathetic dystrophy, a debilitating and potentially lethal nerve disease with pain so intense that some of its sufferers take their own lives. May, a clean-cut Republican and married father of three, describes the pain as though "my feet are in a deep fryer."
