|Medical marijuana advocates, including dispensary operators and cultivators threatened with federal charges or property seizures, will use President Barack Obama's appearance in San Francisco today to protest 'his administration's new attack on the medical marijuana community.' With the president in the city for a $7,500-per-plate fundraiser at the W Hotel, activists will hold a media gathering at another hotel 'to call for federal policy reform' on medical marijuana, said California Assemblyman Tom Ammiano. The San Francisco Democrat is due to appear at press conference at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel along with Lynette Shaw, director of California's longest operating dispensary, the Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana.|
