According to the Bay Citizen Friday: "U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag sent a letter to the landlord of Lee’s medical marijuana dispensary, Coffeeshop Blue Sky, ordering its eviction, according to people familiar with the situation." Lee had no comment. Federal authorities have a long history of trying to scare landlords out of leasing space to cannabis enterprises.

Meanwhile, medical marijuana activists protest Obama in Los Angeles today. And in San Francisco and Sacramento tomorrow (3 p.m. at the Federal Building, 501 I St., Sacramento.)
