The District Attorney plays a very important role in the county in determining how medical cannabis patients, caregivers, and collectives interact with the legal system. The DA holds the power to decide which cases go to court and which are dismissed. With so many cases currently pending, voters want to know where the candidates stand on these issues. The forum presents an opportunity to hear both candidates’ positions on a number of relevant, local, medical cannabis issues. Moderating the debate will be Ernie Carpenter, former Sonoma County Supervisor. A question and answer period will follow the candidates’ statements.
The candidates have received a questionnaire and their answers will be available to the public on April 23. They will also receive another set of questions that we plan to ask that night.
Since 2002 long time patient advocacy groups, Sonoma Alliance for Medical Marijuana (SAMM) and Sonoma County Chapter of Americans for Safe Access (ASA) have sponsored this public forum. This year they are joined by newly formed PAC, Citizens for Responsible Access (CRA).
On June 3rd the voters of Sonoma County will decide who will fill the role of District Attorney for the next 4 years. Please vote on June 3!
