Department of Justice Letter Threatening Marla James and Patient Med Aid (March, 2013)

On March 13, 2013, P. (Patrick) Greg Parham, the Assistant U.S. Attorney in Los Angeles attacking medical marijuana patients for the last five years, wrote a letter to Patient Med Aid, a medical cannabis collective that provides medication to seriously ill and disabled people. Patient Med Aid was the subject of an O.C. Weekly article published in November, 2012 titled "Too Sick to Smoke." The article included interviews with Patient Med Aid members suffering from cancer, PTSD, and AIDS.

Marla James, a wheelchair bound amputee and citizen of Huntington Beach, California, worked to open a Patient Med Aid location in Sunset Beach in February, 2013. Huntington Beach bans patient collectives and dispensaries. Providing for numbers of cancer patients and AIDS patients, P. Greg Parham, the individual primarily responsible for the Southern California federal attack on patients, sent a threatening letter to Ms. James and the patient collective's landlord.

On May 31, 2013, Patient Med Aid will close down leaving hundreds of seriously-ill patients without access to medical cannabis. In early-2012, when asked what patients were to do after all the collectives in a neighboring city were forced to close through federal action, Parham told the husband of a patient they can "go back to the streets" and get the drug illegally like they used to.

P. Greg Parham is one of seven people who have literally destroyed collectives throughout Southern California. Jeff Dunn of law firm Best, Best, and Kreiger, Carmen Trutanich, former Los Angeles city attorney, Andre Birotte, Jr. and Laura Duffy, the U.S. Attorneys in Southern California appointed by President Obama, Robert Shannon, former city attorney of Long Beach, and Moses Johnson, IV, the assistant city attorney of Anaheim, California.
