CIVIL RIGHTS the city and county of Santa Cruz, Calif., the Women’s Alliance for Medicinal Marijuana (WAMM), a Davenport, Calif.-based collective of patients who cultivate marijuana for medical use, and several members of the collective have sued U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft and several known and unknown drug enforcement officers to establish their right to dispense and use medical marijuana. The plaintiffs allege that WAMM, in compliance with laws enacted by the county and city, cultivates marijuana solely for the medical use of patients who obtain permission from a physician. The plaintiffs claim that the federal government, purporting to be enforcing the Controlled Substances Act, has “embarked upon a crusade to disrupt WAMM’s lawful” cultivation and distribution of marijuana. County of Santa Cruz, Calif. v. Ashcroft, No. C03 01802 (N.D. Calif. April 23). FOR PLAINTIFFS: Frank Kennamer, Neha Nissen, Lauri Schumacher and Troy Sauro, Bingham McCutchen, San Francisco; Gerald Uelman, Santa Clara University School of Law, Santa Clara, Calif.
