Scott Lewis scrutinizes U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy’s recent statements about her approach to medical marijuana enforcement.


U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy effectively shut down more than 200 medical marijuana dispensaries across San Diego County with a series of letters threatening prosecution.

More than a year later, Mayor Bob Filner and other city officials have announced plans to work on a new city ordinance that accommodates dispensaries.
