I am writing to you as a wife and mother of two young daughters, whose 34-year old husband, Matthew Davies, faces 10 years or more in federal prison for providing medical marijuana to sick people in California, even though he complied with state law concerning medicinal cannabis. My questions to you are simple:

How can your Administration ignore the will of the California people and prosecute this good, law-abiding man for doing exactly what state law permits?
