(SACRAMENTO) – Attorney General Bill Lockyer today released the following statement regarding federal government involvement in the medical marijuana issues:

"The federal government should respect the will of California voters, who have given physicians authority to recommend medical marijuana to seriously ill and dying patients. I urge federal drug officials to redirect limited resources from busting medical marijuana patients to helping us apprehend and prosecute large criminal drug operations, including methamphetamine and commercial quantity marijuana gardens, that prey on our youth and our communities."
