Harborside Health Center wins a battle in the marijuana war

Last month, Governor Jerry Brown,  speaking on CNN, said:  “It’s time for the Justice Department to recognize the sovereignty of the states. We already have a fair amount of marijuana use in the guise of medical marijuana, so we are capable of self-government. We don’t need some federal gendarme to come tell us what to do.”

The issue made headlines locally last week, when an Alameda County judge refused to allow an Oakland landlord to evict the Harborside Health Center, despite pressure from the federal government to do so. KALW’s Holly Kernan sate down with Crosscurrents' Cannabis correspondent, Steven Short, to discuss Harborside and other pressing cannabis topics.
