Women’s Spaces Radio Show on KBBF-FM 89.1 with host Elaine B. Holtz and guest Lynette Shaw, the Godmother of Medical Cannabis Dispensaries,  broadcast on 5/23/16, has been uploaded to the web archives.


Featuring Guest:

1. Lynette Shaw  ,  Godmother of Medical Cannabis Dispensaries


Guest 1.  Lynette Shaw shares how she earned her title as Godmother of Medical Cannabis Dispensaries with her dogged compassion and willingness to help patients in her 18 year long legal battle with the Federal Department of Justice and DEA.  Lynette with her attorneys were able to keep the doors open 11 years with appeals to President Clinton’s administration’s lawsuit, U.S. vs. Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana and Lynette Shaw, to close the first dispensary in California and the United States to receive a local permit.  Finally on April 12, 2016, after 5 years in seclusion for fear of reprisals by the DOJ against her colleagues and friends, Lynetter received word that the DOJ and DEA dropped their challenges after being berated by the 9th Circuit Judge for denying Lynette her Constitutional Rights as afforded by the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment that denied budgeting the DEA’s attack on Medical Cannabis Dispensaries in those states like California that have laws protecting its use.

The following article is about the Federal 9th Circuit decision by Judge Breyer that was appealed by the DOJ in December 2015.  The DOJ dropped its appeal on April 12, 2016.  Lynette did win for all medical cannabis patients!  Maybe President Obama again remembered his use of marijuana as a student in Hawaii, the number of states that passed laws at the behest of its citizens,  and the disconnect with the federal law prohibiting its use supposed by President Nixon to have no medical value and is harmful?
