Re "County down to 8 pot shops" (Page A1, Dec. 4): The crackdown by
federal prosecutors with overzealous personnel on medical marijuana
dispensaries in California is completely illegal, unconstitutional and
a shameful attack by government on American civil liberties.

By what legal authority does the federal government have to prohibit
cannabis use for medical use by responsible Americans? By what
constitutional authority does the government have to confiscate the
private property of landlords and legitimate businesses? This
crackdown comes directly from the U.S. Department of Justice and the
desk of Attorney General Eric Holder.

Holder has kept a low profile. Perhaps he cannot find any bankers to
arrest and once again attempts to divert public attention to pot
dispensaries and lesser crimes.
