OAKSTERDAM UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT RICHARD LEE TELLS DCMARIJUANALAW: “I WON’T BE INTIMIDATED BY THE DEA”

On Monday, Oaksterdam University president Richard Lee had his university raided, his home searched, and he himself was detained by the DEA. His response: “I won’t be intimidated.”

In a letter to DCmarijuanaLaw, written after his release, Lee vows to fight on:

“Paul,

On Monday, April 2, my school — Oaksterdam University in Oakland — was raided by the DEA, IRS, and US Marshals. Oaksterdam provides training to the medical cannabis industry, and is fully compliant with state and local law.

President Obama promised at the beginning of his administration to respect state medical marijuana laws. He has broken this promise time and time again — and the consequences have been devastating.

This was a senseless act of intimidation. But I’ve been an activist far too long to become intimidated — and with the majority of Americans and common sense on our side, I know this is a fight we can win.

With our government trillions in debt, why is our government using taxpayer dollars to come after me, Oaksterdam, and the thousands of patients who need medical marijuana just to get through the day?

Tell President Obama and the DEA: Enough is enough. Keep your campaign promise, and stop the raids on the medical cannabis industry!

Thanks for your support,

Richard Lee”
